Beacon Rock State Park – Area Recreation

Beacon Rock has some pretty sweet technical rock climbing routes and also a mile-long trail up to the top. But hold your horses – check with the Ranger as the technical climbing routes may be close to protect the nesting Peregrine Falcons.  The routes usually open back up in July when the little fellas have hatched and flown away at supersonic speeds (they are one of the fastest, if not the fastest birds on the planet).

Visitors can enjoy spectacular views of the Columbia River Gorge. The park also has over 9,500 feet of freshwater shoreline on the Columbia River. In addition to the park, outdoor activities include camping, biking, mountain biking, hiking, horseback riding, boating, fishing and wildlife viewing.

    We visited here in June 2014 in our 24′ Chinook Destiny RV. There are only 5 sites with full RV hookups, and they are non-reservable. This campground is (now) connected by a trail to the main campground/park. The RV park is directly adjacent to the railroad tracks, and the trains run day/night — they will be loud. This is also tick country, so plan accordingly. All that being said, we loved this park. The pier, large picnic area, nice restrooms, and a 1-mile paved loop trail are easily accessible from the RV campground. There are several other hikes accessible from the main campground. If you’re RVing, you’ll have to add the mileage to the campground onto your hike or drive a separate vehicle up to the parking lot (don’t forget your Discover Pass if so!) The hike up to the top of Beacon Rock is a classic, with part of the trail made of switchback boardwalks. Pool of the Winds is not to be missed, either. The wildlife we saw included blue herons, mergansers, osprey, bald eagles, beaver, ducks, and garter snakes.

    I gave this park 4 stars due to the train noise and limited RV sites.
