Charbonneau Park in Eastern Washington was named one of America's Top 100 Family Campgrounds. It is located on Lake Sacajawea, formed by Ice Harbor Lock and Dam on the Lower Snake River. The park was named for Toussaint Charbonneau, an interpreter for Lewis and Clark and husband of Sacajawea, the famous Shoshone interpreter on the Corps of Discovery. The park provides excellent recreational opportunities for boaters, campers, upland and waterfowl hunters and anglers.
The lake provides great boating and swimming opportunities, and a boat ramp is provided for guests. Fishing is also a popular pastime, and anglers will find excellent salmon and steelhead fishing on the lake.
The park offers 52 family sites and two day-use group picnic shelters, all with electric hookups.
The campground is situated on the banks of Lake Sacajawea, and several of its waterfront sites have scenic views of the lake. The park is characterized by its open grassy areas dotted with a few large shade trees.

This is a nice campground for locals to get away for a weekend set along the Snake River. The campground has a clean, grassy park setting with a decent sized park nearby for kids with a swimming area. There is also a nice protected boat launch. the Campground is quiet and has nice views of the river. The sites have electricity but they have no water.
It's close to the city and right on the water. It also has trains going by all night. Didn't take any pictures because it's not worth remembering. Camp hosts were nice though!
I have been going here for 20 years it's very nice clean and friendly people that run it. Great for tents or RVs. Full facilities with showers. You can watch the river traffic has a small marina by it that you can get gas at for your boat if you have those. Very busy Campground hard to get into at times.
