Come along on our virtual sneak-peek tour of Johnny Counts Cabin at Astoria Park! This bucolic and historic structure is named after prospector Johnny Counts, who was the first known white settler to make Astoria their long term home in the early 1900s. Johnny Counts would pan up to 100 wheelbarrows a day of silt and gravel from the Snake River and its tributaries, amounting to about a penny's worth of gold per wheelbarrow. During the time Johnny Counts lived at Astoria, the area was known as Counts Hot Spring or Johnny Counts Flats.

Johnny Counts Cabin, built in the early 2000s has been updated to provide an idyllic setting, perched along the wild and scenic Snake River. This building has multiple configurations for private rental, with discounted pricing for non-profit and education organizations; we will begin renting the space later this year along with our hot springs opening.  It is the perfect setting for a family reunion, board meeting, or birthday party and rental fees include admissions to the hot springs pools.  For more information about renting Johnny Counts Cabin, please reach out via email to Take a closer look in this sneak-peek tour, guided by Astoria Park Conservancy's intern Dory Sumner. 


Construction of the hot springs and associated amenities continues to carefully progress at Astoria. In the last month, our crews have begun building the picnic pavilion on site, decks surrounding the pools, and the Welcome Center roof.  A big thank you to our partners at The Trust for Public Land, especially local Senior Project Manager Chris Deming, for managing our construction during this challenging time. We look forward to continuing to share our progress via our virtual webcam at, our social media channels and in future newsletters as we approach our opening date later this summer.
