We would take the boat down and launch and spending the day water skiing on the Columbia. Then have a BBQ before heading home. Great place to enjoy the water.

We enjoy hiking in this state park early in the spring or later in the fall. The area is interesting and makes a quick hike at not too far a distance.

Right on the Columbia River, was mentioned in Lewis & Clark's journals. Lots of hiking trails, a duck pond, and nice boat ramp. One of the nicest parks in the area.

You can hike for miles along the bluffs of the Columbia following the Lewis and Clark route. Also there is a small picnic area, and a loop up to the hat rock.

You cannot climb the rock (legally) but you can look and it has a good campground on the river and a store nearby.
