General Information

Description - Crow Butte State Park covers over 1,300 acres with 33,910 feet of freshwater shoreline. The park affords guests with 20 picnic sites, three picnic shelters, 50 full hookup sites, group camping (60 maximum), a trailer dump station, 750 feet of unguarded beach, three boat ramps, a boat basin, a bathhouse and a 2-bay shop/office. The park is situated on the historic Lewis & Clark Trail and is also adjacent to the McNary National Wildlife Refuge, wintering grounds for hundreds of thousands of
migratory waterfowl each year.

Recreation - Guests of the park can enjoy boating, camping, fishing, hiking, picnicking, sightseeing, swimming, water skiing, windsurfing, and bird watching.

Climate - The climate of Washington varies within each region. The Cascades split the state and alter the weather patterns. The terrain east of the mountains, which includes Crow Butte State Park, receives approximately 12 inches of rainfall per year, generally much less than west of the mountains. Since the area east of the mountains is landlocked, temperatures in this region are lower during the winter months. Frequent winds coming down from the mountains also contribute to the low temperatures of eastern Washington.

Location - Crow Butte State Park is located on the southern border of Washington in Benton County, 15 miles west of Paterson. The park borders the Columbia River and State Route 14.

Report: This beautiful park on the Columbia River includes a wonderful campground with full services. We spent one night (Oct. 2, 2004); weather was perfect-about 80 in the afternoon and plenty of empty spaces. We would definitely recommend a stay here. Make sure you have what you need--the nearest grocery of any size is 40 miles away!

Additional Information:
Washington State Parks - Washington has 149 state parks located around the state.
Wine Country - As you cross the mountains from the west on your way to Wine Country, you emerge from the forest into the naked sun and dry, rippling hills of the Yakima Valley. Stretched out ahead, the Saddle Mountains wear little foliage and the bones of the earth are suddenly visible.
