  • Really well maintained state park. Well worth the $10.00 fee to park. Very relaxing ambiance at Keats during weekdays. You can see the confluence of the snake and Columbia rivers .
  • Nice park but I wouldn't go hours out of my way to visit. The museum was interesting and Maya Lin's sculpture was nice.
  • Beautiful park. Great Bluegrass Festival here in June every year.
  • Beautiful park with boating access right at a major river intersection. Interpretive center is nice as well. Good for swimming, boating, fishing, walking, and I typically bring a dog.
  • Lots of bugs and requires a day use fee. Nice park includes a muesum. Also, allows swimming, boat docking and has coin operated showers.
