Free Camping in Washington Along The Columbia River (Boondocking)
May 31, 2015
I went out exploring the dams and sights along the Columbia River between Oregon and Washington and found some of the best free camping in Washington.
The scenery was spectacular along Washington Highway 14 (also known as the Lewis and Clark Highway). I hiked up the trail at Beacon Rock State Park to get a panoramic view of the entire valley and spotted the Bonneville Dam in the distance.
The best part of my visit to the Bonneville Dam was checking out the fish ladders and watching salmon swim through. I also visited Hood River, The Dalles Dam, John Day Dam, and Washington's version of Stonehenge, before scouting out some future boondocking spots near the John Day Dam. Melissa and I will definitely be returning there to do more exploring and camping along the river.
