This is a great park. Playground, picnic benches,free museum, gazebos, boat launch, pebble beach and swimming area.
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 .
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.
Our Boy Scout troop bicycled here and camped over night. The interpretive center is well worth a few dollar donation. The park allows scout troops to camp for a nominal price if you do a service project. We're already looking forward to our next opportunity.
Very nice park with an outstanding Interpretative Center. Very good information about the Lewis and Clark expedition. It's a small building, but packed with a lot to see. There's also a small swimming beach and plenty of shaded picnic areas.
Lots of bugs and requires a day use fee. Nice park includes a muesum. Also, allows swimming, boat docking and has coin operated showers.
