Nestled amongst a Good Sam camper resort, and a residential area you might think this wouldn't be much of a place but you'd be wrong. Lots of parking, trails to hit, wide open grass areas and picnic table galore. A good place to spend the day out of doors.

Hat Rock is part of the Lewis and Clark trail, so there's a kiosk explaining the historical significance. There are also several trailheads with gravel and panoramic views of the Columbia. The one up to the rock is a switchback but my little guys (2 and 4) made it just fine. Hat Rock itself isn't exactly like Arches or anything... More

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.
