  • This is a tricky park to find. It is located in the city of Wenatchee on the Columbia River. You must make several turns in an industrial area and some of the turns are not marked with signs. Google Maps did a good job getting us to this park. The park has green grass and big shade trees. Nice size spaces with full hookup but no privacy. We self registered and did not see any park staff during our stay. Play ground located in the campground as well as in the day use area. The Huron Nature area is next door to the park and there is a trail and bridge connecting it to the campground area. Lots of lookouts with benches for bird viewing along trail from campground to beach area. It is a bit of a walk to get to the beach. The park and beach were clean and there are paved trails. We did not hear traffic from the campground. It was quiet and peaceful.
  • A really nice park, close to town, with easy access from a biking/walking path. Great bike rides from here, either easy ones along the river, or a bit more climbing up the valleys. The park itself is nicely maintained and spacious.
  • For boating, camping or just hanging out, this is a great spot- especially for kids on hot days to swim in the river in a shallow area with other kids. Many geese also call this spot home as well as other waterfowl and it abounds with birdwatching and photographic opportunities, especially with the adjacent nature area across the walking bridge. You can also do a 10 mile loop around the river from your camp site on nice paved trails.
  • Lots of bird poop. Seems less maintained than Riverfront/Walla Walla Parks.
  • A treat to this refuge right in the city. Lovely, most level paved trail, perfect for walking or cycling.
