Plymouth Park, COE, Plymouth, WA site #16

The small, 32 site park along the Columbia River is an oasis of lush grass and tall trees in the otherwise brown landscape of fall in western Washington.  All sites offer water & electric for $24/night, about half also provide a sewer port for an additional $3/night.  Sites are long and level pull-throughs, most with shade, a picnic table and fire ring.  There are 3 back-in sites near the center of the park, next to the camper services building providing flush toilets, showers and a single washer/dryer ($1.25 wash, $.25/10 minutes dry).

Nearly in the shadow of the Umatilla Bridges, which span the Columbia River into Oregon, and only about 2 miles downstream from McNary Dam, the park is operated by the US Army Corps of Engineers.  Lewis and Clark camped here or near here on April 26th, 1806.

Verizon and T-Mobile data were both usable with the booster.  There were about 20 channels of OTA signal, including all major networks.  While we’re just utilizing this park for a quick overnight, it would make a good home base for visits around the area.  We’ll continue SE tomorrow, ending up on the banks of the Snake River at Farewell Bend.  More from Oregon…
