The Port of Clarkston is home to one of the biggest cranes on a navigable waterway east of Portland. A major industry in the area is agriculture and the port handles plenty of barge traffic carrying grains. Clearwater Paper Corporation transports sawdust and wood chips via barges for use at Lewiston manufacturing plant. Due to the inland location on Snake River, the port handles goods headed inland to distributors upstream and out to Portland-Vancouver.

The Clarkston port's marina provides accommodations for personal boats and yachts, a large number of which travel through nearby Hells Canyon.
