Wasco Reviews

An amazing bit of Americana, alive and well. I moved here to give my family the American dream, truly a safe and beautiful community. There are so many outdoor activities to do: hunting, fishing, biking, boating, kayaking, trail riding, photography opportunities, and community events. Lovely place to raise a family.

Lovely small town. Friendly people. Beautiful views of Mt Hood and Mt Adamson clear days. Rural area with Agriculture as the main industry. Wonderful little coffee and gift shop down town situated between the local Market/ Butcher shop and the local beauty salon.
