Central Ferry Park (Closed)

Campground Description:  It doesn't matter if you enjoy tent camping, RV camping or boating, this could end up being your favorite campground in Southeastern Washington.  Operated by the US Army Corps of Engineers, Central Ferry Park is a 185 acre park that offers a day use area, full camping services, a boat launch, volleyball, horseshoes, hiking, fishing and waterskiing on 10,000+ acre Lake Bryan.  Although on the Snake River, Lake Bryan is formed by the river backing up behind Little Goose Dam.  The campsites at Central Ferry Park are widely spaced and neatly organized.  The restroom facilities offer flush toilets and hot showers.  The park is very well landscaped with large open lawn areas and plenty of trees.  The only drawback is the location.  Being near nothing, Central Ferry Park is truly a destination park where the camper or boater will want to just stop for a few days and unwind.  Open April to October.

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.
