Laying on the shores of the Columbia River, Beacon Rock State Park is a natural jewel of Washington state. This park is located southeast of Castle Rock and a two-hour drive from Olympia. Beacon Rock State Park is known for an 848-foot basalt volcanic plug recorded by Lewis and Clark in 1805. They passed through this part of Washington on their way to the Pacific Ocean. This area became a state park in 1935 after the Biddle family gave away their land to the state in an attempt to save the Beacon Rock from being destroyed.

Today, the 4,464-acre state park is frequented by rock climbers, hikers, and outdoor enthusiasts looking for their next big adventure. Beacon Rock State Park campers may enjoy stunning views of the changing terrain, diverse flora and fauna, and the glorious Columbia River. When you want to escape the city noise for a couple of days and bask in Washington’s wilderness, look for RV rentals in Skamania County, pack a comfortable pair of hiking shoes, and take a short drive to Beacon Rock State Park.

Getting Outdoors

Beacon Rock State Park has miles and miles of trails, including a hike up 2,445-foot Hamilton Mountain that is attractive to avid hikers. When you accept the challenge of conquering this picturesque trail, you may see Hardy Falls and Rodney Falls along the way. Hiking Beacon Rock itself is a must-do for all adventure seekers who go motorhome camping here. This trail has bridges and switchbacks first constructed by the Biddle family. Once you reach the top, you may revel in a breathtaking view of the Columbia River Gorge.

Anglers like to come here all year round, and the best fishing spots are on the lower Columbia River, just below Bonneville Dam. Getting access to the water is easy since there are several docks on the river and miles of groomed shoreline. Anglers may set up their equipment there and view the scenic backdrop while trying to catch fish. Columbia River is abundant in salmon, bass, walleye, steelhead, and sturgeon. Keep in mind that campers need a valid recreational license to fish in any state park in Washington.

Camping at Beacon Rock State Park

Beacon Rock State Park’s campground is a bit rustic and old, but it is a great place to be if you plan on exploring the area. The main camp is surrounded by dense forest and offers five sites that may accommodate RVs up to 40 feet long. These sites have full hookups that include water, electricity, and sewer. Even though the campground is closed for tent camping during winter, these five RV sites can be used all year round.

The campground also has new showers and bathrooms, as well as a large picnic area. There are also two kitchen shelters near the picnic tables that can be used by visitors. Pets are also welcome at the campground, but owners need to keep them on a leash and clean up after them. Should you plan on RV camping at Beacon Rock State Park, it is good to know that you cannot make a reservation because all sites are first-come, first-served.

Exploring the Area

Olympia is the capital of Washington and a beautiful Pacific Northwest city. This place is known for many parks and green spaces within the city limits. Outdoorsy people often come here because Olympia is close to Mount St. Helens, an active stratovolcano. But there are still plenty of things to do and see in Olympia itself. If you happen to be camping at Beacon Rock State Park, don’t miss an opportunity to tour Olympia and get familiar with this lovely place. Your first stop could be the Washington State Capitol Building at the Capitol Campus. The 287-feet tall white dome can be seen from anywhere in the city. The Capitol Building was completed in 1928. It features ornate decorations and gorgeous interiors. Visitors may go on a guided tour of the Capitol Building or explore the equally fascinating campus. There are many monuments, fountains, and parks where they may sit down and relax.

Younger campers might be interested in the Hands-on Children's Museum. Just like the name suggests, this museum features eight exhibition spaces that house interactive displays. Kids may learn about a variety of topics while playing with the exhibits. They could discover the nature of Washington right here in the museum, or express their creativity in the Arts & Crafts section. Visitors of all ages may find something fun to do here.

Located in downtown Olympia, just a stone-throw away from Percival Landing, Olympia’s Farmers Market is the place to be if you want to purchase fresh produce, flowers, unique crafts, and many more. It is the second-biggest Farmers Market in the state and is held on certain days of the week. When you are looking for a place to eat, there are dozens of restaurants in the downtown area offering both local and international food.

Washington has loads of natural wonders worth visiting, and campers who are ready to hit the road again could refill the tank of their RV at one of many gas stations around Olympia. Are you unsure where to go next? Drive east to Yakima and make a stop at Mount Rainier State Park along the way.
