Fishhook Park is located on the shores on Lake Sacajawea in Eastern Washington. The lake is formed by Ice Harbor Lock and Dam on the Lower Snake River.
The park was named for Fishhook Rapids, which were once nearby, where Lewis and Clark spent time in October 1805. Today Fishhook is a fishing destination, as the name implies, attracting boaters and anglers alike to its black rock canyons. Visitors also enjoy camping, upland hunting, hiking, swimming and water sports.
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.
Fishhook Park offers 41 family sites and one day-use group picnic shelter, all with electric hookups. Eleven primitive, walk-up tent sites are available as well with two of them being group sites with sun shelters.
The campground is situated on the waterfront. Visitors enjoy relaxing in the shade under the mature trees scattered throughout the park.

Love this campground and will come back. My husband and I usually pull our ‘68 Aristocrat Lo-Liner but on this trip we were “roughing it” with a tent and a small SUV. I was happy that not only did we get a spot on the river, but there were free, clean hot showers centrally located. The back in spots were not too close together. Some spots offer shade, others are full on sun. And the catfish were biting!
The campground is beautiful! Wish the US Corps of Engineers would make the season longer. Sewer is not available but they do have a dump station. RV sites have a crazy amount of space between them - so awesome to not have to look into your neighbors RV. We had a short walk to the shore with our paddle boards and a great day on the river. Down side - got a little loud on Sunday. Boats and personal water craft clogged the marina and the staff began their mowing and weed eating bright and early - guess they're reminding everyone of check out time. Regardless, looking forward to many more stays!
We camped here May 2016. This park we tried the tent only site and it was a bit of a walk to haul all of our stuff. The trees were in bloom and bugs hatching & swarming, so that was a huge hurdle. Fishing was great off of the docks. Showers were nice, although not located in the tent part of camp. Bathrooms were ok, but no lights at night. The beach would be nice when the water is higher, otherwise it's just muddy.
This area is very well maintained and the staff is very friendly.
