Very cool state park

Very cool state park in the middle of the Wanapum Recreational area and on the shores of Wanapum Lake/Columbia River. Two camping loops, one on a bluff overlooking the river with pretty views (the loop you want to be on) and the other further away from the water..

The landscape is really gorgeous and colorful. The park has a very large boat launch area with day use facilities available. You’re also a very short drive from the Ginko Petrified Forest, interpretive center, and rock shop, all of which are super fun for rock-hounders.

The Ginko Petrified forest has amazing views alongside an interpretive center with cool rock formations and ancient petroglyphs. The rock shop is super funky with cheesy dinosaur statues out front.

Eww, eww, eww!

Park is adjacent to a dirty truck stop with two interstates intersecting….we kept driving south along the river towards Yakima and found 3 beautiful blm campgrounds!

Great off the road stop

We enjoyed one night at this national campground. Nice spacious private sites. Clean fire rings and adequate bathrooms. There was wild roosters running around which was difficult for our retrievers who are pheasant hunting dogs. The mossy cliff was beautiful and fun foot bridge. We were warned there’s a lot of rattlesnakes in summer,but we camped in February.

A favorite that we keep coming back to!

We've camped here many times! It's always been clean, well maintained, and positive. We're coming back in July 2020!

Camp on the "Canyon" Edge

Just off I90 in Eastern WA at Vantage. This is primarily a rock climbers base camp, but also serves well for a great overnight stop where you can camp right on the edge of the canyon, get in some nice vista views,& a short hike to a"falls". You will share this spot with other campers, busy even in winter. One note about access, the entrance to this camping area has some pitch to it. Better suited for high clearance vehicles, and brave souls in truck campers……

Sommertime shade

Great for weekend getaways from Tri Cities. River access and plenty of shade. Discounts for vets and seniors.

Great location and great amenities

Great RV park on the heart of wine country

First to Review
First Time

Pretty decent campground. A little too close to a road, we heard cars driving by at night. Camp host seemed nice. We took trailers and the spot we were in required the trailers to be a little too far away from the fire/social area.

Labor day fun

Camp ground maintained by super nice camp hosts from hoodoo. Lost of trees and space between sites. Easy access to Rimrock lake. A littel road noise but worth the views and access to the lake. No power but several pit tiolets on site.

Highway noise

Not a big fan of any KOA, but this one is really close to the highway and the noise is very obnoxious. The park is ok in terms of cleanliness but sites are small and very close together. Way overpriced.
