The Maryhill (Washington) State Park is located about 104 miles east of Portland, Ore., on the Washington State side of the mighty Columbia River. It sits on the river’s edge across from Biggs, Ore., a popular travelers’ and truckers’ stop for fuel and fast food.
RVers can cross north over the Hwy. 97 bridge from Oregon, Exit 104 off Interstate 84. Or you can approach it, as we did, from the Washington side along State Route 14. (Pictured above with Mt. Hood to the west.)
This year-round, 99-acre recreation vehicle and tent/van campground has 4,700 feet of waterfront on the magnificent Columbia River in Klickitat County. The park has 20 tent sites and 50 utility sites. Maximum site length is 60 feet.
Off season rates for partial hookups (electricity, but no water between Nov. 1-March 31) are $27 (cash or check). Standard sites are $17-25. No flush toilets, port-a-pottys available.
Or, if you are a Washington State resident, over 62 years old, and believe you will camp in a state park at least five days over the coming winter months–spring for a $75 Off Season Pass Senior Pass that offers free nightly boondock/dry camping or moorage (from Oct. 1-March 31, and Sunday through Thursday in April). There is a $10 per-night fee for utility sites. Click here for details.
There is a dump station. Small $5 fee if you are not camping.
