    This state park is located in Central Washington on the Columbia River, very near the bridge where you cross over the Columbia to Biggs Junction, Oregon. It is a beautiful park with huge grassy irrigated lawns. It feels like an oasis.

    A few minutes from the park, is Maryhill Museum, wineries, the iconic Dalles Bridge that connects Washington and Oregon and a mile away, is also a full-scale replica of Stonehenge, built as a monument to local soldiers killed in World War I and is open to the public. Perhaps on the down side is a nearby train track and there is somewhat frequent train traffic. We happen to love trains though and it didn't bother us at all. Sometimes, traffic noise can be heard as there is a steep climb to get up out of the park on the Washington side and a highway across the river on the Oregon side.

    Water sports seem to be popular here and we enjoyed watching wind surfing when we were there.

    There are full hookups down to tent sites. Some RV sites are back in and some are pull through.

    We would definitely stay here again.
