White River Falls State Park is a state park in central Oregon, U.S., located about 40 miles (60 km) south of The Dalles and 6 miles (10 km) east of Tygh Valley.

The wild and scenic White River plunges 90 feet (27 m) from a basalt shelf within the park. There are ruins of a hydropower plant which supplied electricity to central Oregon from 1910 to 1960 at the base of the falls. [ [http://www.oregonstateparks.org/park_36.php Oregon Parks and Recreation ] ]
