Off-leash friendly
Pets can be off-leash at some sites.
Grassy area with trees on the bank of the Yakima River. Quiet and peaceful. Small campfires are allowed all year in designated spots. There are mosquitos so be prepared for that! During the summer months, the Yakima River is perfect for kayaking, paddleboarding, canoeing, float tubes, or just swimming. Catfish and bass are the main fish here and fishing is good most of the time.

Riverside oasis
Roger was super welcoming and this spot is absolutely gorgeous! The site is right on the river; we spotted pelicans, herons, a deer, many fish jumping, and lots of folks paddling down the river. Other than the sounds of people passing by on the river and some fireworks nearby (we stayed over Fourth of July weekend), it was quiet and very peaceful. The bathroom is a short walk from the campsite and has a flush toilet and sink - it makes you feel a little more civilized while spending some time outdoors! There are some mosquitoes, no more than to be expected being near water, but definitely bring bug spray! The camp sites are in shade for the later portion of the day. The river has a lot of vegetation in it, so it’s not ideal for swimming, but perfect for floating in a tube or using a paddle board/kayak. That being said, Roger was clearing some of the water grasses near the shoreline while we were there so it may be a better swimming spot in the future! 10/10 highly recommend!

Very peace and nice location
This site was very pretty, and the host was kind and helpful. We recommend Bug spaying lots of mosquitoes, and we were unprepared for that. Otherwise, it was very nice and peaceful.

Roger was a great host and he has a beautiful and well maintained property. You’ll need bug spray, but the river views and privacy were unmatched!

Quiet and Relaxing Oasis
Roger was a great host. Very friendly, and I felt comfortable staying at this site as a female traveling solo. The view of the river is amazing. There isn't a good place to get in the water because it's boggy at the shore, but there are fish, frogs, and birds, and it is a peaceful atmosphere. No tent pads, so tents get set up on the grass. It was dewy in the morning, so things had to dry out before I could pack up. A nice improvement would be to have stairs cut into the short hillside going down to the tent area. There is play equipment for kids, picnic tables, shade, and tons of flat grassy area. There are bugs, but as someone else said, mostly dragonflies and harmless gnats - not a mosquito or fly in sight during my visit. The cost was higher than I had hoped to pay for a tent site with no shower, so that will weigh in to my decision to stay again. Overall good stay. I slept well!

Great site. Clean. Bugs, but mostly dragonflies and gnats. Bathroom is nice and new. River is nice and can stand up in it. Trees make good shade in afternoon.
