The Sand Hollow Campground is a great location for tent camping and has a popular sandy beach shoreline. Other amenities include a day-use picnic area, 10 primitive walk-in camping sites, 30 semi-primitive vehicle access camp sites, gravel access roads and four double vault toilets. The campground is open year round.
Dusty. Minimal to no shade. Walk in sites are really tight. Heavy winds at night. No running water bathrooms. Noise from highway at night is very noticeable. No recycling option. Fire pits but there was a burn ban for wood (charcoal and propane are ok).
Bathrooms are much cleaner than most typical public bathrooms with good supply of purell and toilet paper. The car sites seem really new with fresh pavements. Lots and lots of rocks, helpful for holding things down in the strong winds Easy access to River activities (swimming, boating, fishing, rinsing dust off) with short, maintained pathways. Many ADA features: multiple sites are set up for wheelchair access, even some paths are wheelchair accessible.
This spot is nice and easy since it's just off of I90. The Columbia river is beautiful and the best part of this spot. Not much privacy and right next to the freeway but we always feel safe here.
I give this campground 4 stars for being easy and convenient. It's right on the Columbia river and one of the few campgrounds that allow bonfires. Otherwise I'd give it 3 stars for no frills about the location. There isn't any privacy at the campsites due to it being the desert. The stars and moon gazing are excellent!
