It’s easy to get lost in the forests of Central Washington, but perhaps one of the best things that could happen to you is stumbling upon Daroga State Park. With 1.5 miles of Columbia River shoreline, rolling hills of evergreens and lots of sunshine, Daroga is an easy place to just chill and take it all in.
If camping is on the list, you’ll find beautiful grassy spots that have lazy afternoon picnic written all over them. The Columbia river provides much of the attraction to the park, offering a variety of activities from kayaking to swimming to fishing to just listening to the soothing sounds of flowing water. So, how about it?
Anyone can walk up to their campsite, but only at Daroga Campground can you boat up to your campsite. So paddle on over to one of the 17 tent...

History of Daroga State Park
The name Daroga comes from the first letters in the first names of the three Auvil brothers, Dave, Robert and Grady, who started an orchard / ranch at this site in 1928. The brothers developed a new type of peach on the ranch, catalogued as the Daroga Peach. In 1981, Grady Auvil sold the property to the state of Washington.
