Hood Park is located on Lake Wallula in eastern Washington. The lake is formed by McNary Lock and Dam on the Mid-Columbia River.
Lewis and Clark camped two miles downstream at the confluence of the Snake and Columbia Rivers, which is now the location of Sacajawea State Park.
Visitors enjoy camping, fishing, boating, hiking, picnicking and swimming.
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.
Hood Park offers 67 family sites and one day-use group picnic shelter, all with electric hookups.
The campground is situated along the banks of the lake, offering sweeping views. Campers enjoy relaxing in the shade of the mature trees throughout the park.
The McNary National Wildlife Refuge is adjacent to the park. It provides habitat for migrating waterfowl, bald eagles, shorebirds and other wildlife. Nature trails and an environmental learning center are open to the public.

No water or sewer hookups. Lots of nice sites. If you are a long rv, be cautious as the reservation line has little knowledge of sites.
We do an annual trip here every Father’s Day weekend. Close to the river, plenty of fishing and swimming. The trees are nice. This is an Army Corp of Engineers campground so some federal rules apply: no firearms, no alcohol(at least not openly)
The only issue we have is the sprinklers come on Friday nights and wash the tents for us. it’s good and bad.
This campground offers developed sites with hookups for campers. There is a playground and interpretive events for kids in the evenings. They even had some movies on the weekends. This area is peaceful and relaxing for families. If you are looking for wilderness camping, this is not the place as it has mowed /irrigated lawns around the campground. There is a nature area with some trails onsite for exploring.
Popular Army Corps of Engineers campground on Snake River in Tri-Cities. Flush toilets, real showers. In fairness to this campground, my 3 stars is because we stayed in overflow lot for $14, while real site would have cost us $12 (weekday fee, more on weekend). Campground seemed to have nice vibe with kids on bikes, large playground, amphitheater.
