“Pretty Spot on the Columbia River”

Reviewed May 31, 2018

Overall Rating

This is a relatively new campground along the Columbia River. We camped on a weekday in late May and were the only campers. There is a nice 3 mile hiking/biking trail along the River. About half the trail is paved and the rest is gravel. The campground is terraced with three rows. All of the campsites have a nice view of the River, but poplar trees block some of the view. The day use area with picnic tables and a swimming area are below the campground and adjacent to the River. Sites are gravel with grass in between sites and include a picnic table. The fee for drop in campers is $15 cash. Some leveling is needed. There is no electricity or dump station and I did not see a potable water source. It was quite windy overnight during our visit. The nearby Wanapum Heritage Center is worth a visit.

“Finally got some sun.”

Reviewed Apr 15, 2017

Overall Rating

Primative RV spots right on the Columbia river. Nice and green in the park area but the sites are all somewhat sloping gravel - bring your leveling blocks.

Great spot for RV/Tent combo camping if you can handle a little bit of wind (or a lot depending on the awesome weather systems rolling in over the hills).
