People can plan ahead to camp at the park May 15 – Sept. 15
OLYMPIA – Jan. 30, 2020 – Washington State Parks announces that people can now reserve individual campsites at two Beacon Rock State Park campgrounds. Until recently, these campsites were only available on a first-come, first-served basis. Previously, the only reservable sites were the group campground and kitchen shelters.
For those who like to plan ahead, the campsites can be reserved up to nine months in advance, from May 15 through Sept. 15. Last-minute, spontaneous visitors can take a chance on getting one of three first-come, first-served campsites without a reservation.
Located in the park on the north side of State Route 14. Open April 1 through Oct. 31.
- 25 standard tent sites
- 1 first-come, first-served hiker/biker site
Woodard Creek Campground
Located on the Columbia River side of SR 14. Open year-round.
- 5 RV sites (maximum length – 40 feet; full hookup)
