History of the Area
Located in the Columbia River Gorge, this natural area was established as a state park by Oregon State Parks and Recreation Department. The land for the park was acquired between 1938 and 1957 through purchases from private owners.

The site is named after an early settler family who lived near Hood River during the late nineteenth century. It covers approximately 417 acres of forested terrain with Lindsey Creek running through it, hence its name.

In terms of geological history, much like other parts of Oregon's landscape, this location has been shaped over thousands of years due to volcanic activity and glacial erosion which resulted in unique rock formations that can be seen today within its boundaries.

Despite being relatively small compared to some other parks around Oregon, it offers visitors opportunities for hiking along trails winding up steep slopes offering panoramic views across surrounding landscapes including Mount Adams on clear days.

Over time though there have not been any significant developments or changes made since becoming a protected space; no camping facilities are available nor does it feature visitor centers or interpretive displays unlike many others under management by OSPRD but remains open year-round providing access into wilderness areas where wildlife such as deer may often be spotted roaming freely among trees native species include Douglas fir Western Hemlock Pacific Yew Bigleaf Maple Vine maple Red Alder Black Cottonwood Willow Dogwood Thimbleberry Salmonberry Sword fern Maidenhair fern Bracken Trillium Bleeding heart Wild ginger Indian pipe etc.,
