(Stevenson, Washington) – Washington’s Beacon Rock State Rock – with its sprawling, dizzying trails to the top and lush waterfalls – is opening up two campgrounds to reservations as of this month. Washington State Parks recently announced the change; the campgrounds were formally on a first-come, first-served basis. The only reservable sites were the group campground and kitchen shelters.
Now, those looking ahead to travel to Washington State can reserve the campsites nine months in advance, snagging spots anywhere from May 15 to September 15. Last-minute, spontaneous visitors can take a chance on getting one of three first-come, first-served campsites without a reservation.
The Upper Campground is located in the park on the north side of State Route 14. It is open April 1 through October 31. It features 25 standard tent sites and one first-come, first-served hiker/biker site.
At Woodard Creek Campground, you’ll find five RV sites (maximum length – 40 feet; full hookup), and five RV sites. It is located on the Columbia River side of SR 14. Open year-round.
The Moorage Campground has two first-come, first-served standard campsites.
Reservations for all can be made online at washington.goingtocamp.com, or by calling (888)-CAMPOUT (888-226-7688).
Beacon Rock State Park is a 4,458-acre, camping park located in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. Beacon Rock itself is the core of an ancient volcano. The park includes 9,500 feet of freshwater shoreline on the Columbia River and more than 26 miles of roads and trails open to hiking, mountain biking and equestrian use.
