Lyons Ferry Marina

Campground Description:  Lyons Ferry Marina is owned by the Port of Columbia County and operated by a Kampground of America franchisee.  The campground is located near the confluence of the Snake and Palouse Rivers, approximately 20 miles south of Washtucna, WA.  The marina and RV park are less than 2 miles from Lyons Ferry Park (operated by the US Army Corps of Engineers).  The facility is named a marina for good reason - as such it offers everything a marina should, including long term moorage, fuel, boat docks, boat ramps as well as sales and repairs.

Adjacent to the marina is the full service campground.  The campground at Lyons Ferry Marina offers 18 full hookup, level, paved campsites for RV camping and 40 campsites for tent camping on the lawns.  The restrooms offer flush toilets and hot showers.  Lyons Ferry Marina is at the base of a hill that provides often needed relief from winds.  The campground is open year round.

For those desiring larger campsites, lawns, trees and full hookups, this facility is an excellent alternative to the US Army Corps of Engineers operated Lyons Ferry Park located 2 miles away.

The Free Guide To Northwest Camping is a free guide to both privately owned and publicly owned (state, county and federal government) campgrounds.  The editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not specifically endorse any of the campgrounds listed in this site.  Not every available campground is covered in this free camping guide.  Many of the privately owned and operated campgrounds do allow RV camping but not tent camping.  If in doubt, call the campground first.

The authors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not accept payment from any agency or private campground owners.  In this way we ensure that every description in this free guide is unbiased.  Covered are campgrounds owned and operated by state and federal agencies, private RV campgrounds, RV parks, family campgrounds, and camping sites for both tent camping and all types of RV camping.  While free campgrounds are listed and described, pay per night campgrounds far outnumber the free sites.

Please use the email link above to notify the editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping of any errors or omissions.  New campgrounds are added weekly.
