Starvation Creek State Park is a state park located west of Hood River, Oregon in the Columbia River Gorge. It was named Starvation Creek because a train was stopped there by snow drifts and passengers had to dig the train out. No one actually starved there.[2]

Starvation Creek has a small waterfall and a trailhead for hiking.[3]
