Overview of Ringold Springs Recreation Site

Ringold Springs Recreation Site is situated along the Columbia River just south of Hanford Reach National Monument and is a popular place for camping and fishing. The park is located 25 miles north of the Tri-Cities (Kennewick, Pasco, and Richland, WA) and is maintained by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW). Ringold Springs campsites are first-come, first-served with a maximum stay of 3 nights in a 7 day period. Campers should be aware that the Ringold Springs camping area does not have hookups or potable water (dry camping) but the park does offer vault toilets and a boat launch.

A Washington State Discover Pass or WDFW Vehicle Access Pass is required to camp at Ringold Springs. Washington State Discover Passes can be purchased online and provide access to additional state lands, including state parks. The Vehicle Access Pass provides access only to WDFW lands and is obtained with the purchase of a hunting and fishing license.

Accessibility is not guaranteed, always scout ahead before driving down dirt roads. Learn more: Boondocking 101
