Excellent Developed Free Camping on Sand Island



Long Description:
One of the many sand islands along the Columbia River, this one is man-made, and offers excellent developed (and free) camping. Amenities include grassy area, picnic tables, composting toilets, short nature trails (with information placards), and abundant blackberries during August and September. Access is by beach or dock. Hike is only a few hundred feet to camp. St. Helen's (with a nice boat ramp) is also nearby for a quick re-suppply.
