Maryhill State Park
Campground Description: Maryhill State Park is owned and operated by the State of Washington and is considered one of the premiere State Parks on the Columbia River. The 99 acre park offers 4700 feet of river frontage for camping, swimming, fishing, windsurfing or simply for relaxation. Within a few miles are Maryhill Museum as well as a full size replica of Stonehenge. Shopping and restaurants are available in Goldendale, 12 miles to the North. The main reason people come to Maryhill is to soak up the sun and fish. Unless you bring a boat, fishing for Salmon, Steelhead and Walleye won't be very productive. Shore fishing will often produce a reasonable catch of bass. Maryhill State Park has broken its RV camping and Tent camping into 2 separate areas. Open year round and reservations are strongly recommended - especially for weekend camping.

The Free Guide To Northwest Camping is a free guide to both privately owned and publicly owned (state, county and federal government) campgrounds. The editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not specifically endorse any of the campgrounds listed in this site. Not every available campground is covered in this free camping guide. Many of the privately owned and operated campgrounds do allow RV camping but not tent camping. If in doubt, call the campground first.
The authors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not accept payment from any agency or private campground owners. In this way we ensure that every description in this free guide is unbiased. Covered are campgrounds owned and operated by state and federal agencies, private RV campgrounds, RV parks, family campgrounds, and camping sites for both tent camping and all types of RV camping. While free campgrounds are listed and described, pay per night campgrounds far outnumber the free sites.
Please use the email link above to notify the editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping of any errors or omissions. New campgrounds are added weekly.
