Washington’s only campground in the Gorge between Portland and Hood River, Beacon Rock State Park’s main campground offers outdoor serenity that it’s Oregon-side of the Columbia campground counterparts simply can’t.  Nestled within Beacon Rock State park, there’s plenty of adventure relief to contrast this calm 26 site campground.  The park’s two main attractions are certainly Beacon Rock itself and Hamilton Mountain, one of the state’s best hikes within a stone’s through of Portland.  On your way up Hamilton Mountain, be sure not to miss Hardy Creek’s Pool of the Winds and Rodney Falls.

The campground’s 26 car/tent campsite cluster actually isn’t the park’s only camping option.  There are two horse campsites, 5 full hook-up RV sites at the Park’s Woodard Creek Campground south of WA Hwy 14, and two year-round car/tent campsites next to the park’s marina.  More, as many as 200 guests can be accommodated at the park’s secluded Group Campground.

Note: Shower's require quarters ($0.50/3 minutes) and Beacon Rock State Park’s main campground is closed during the winter months.
