Something not right?

Description

Moderator Note: Please note this location may be seasonal
------------------------------------------------
Free. Pit toilets and nice sites along the Columbia River. Adjacent train traffic is very bothersome through the night but otherwise it was a good place to stay. Regs say no winter camping but we were totally left alone. Good cell service.

on the way to spokane, crossed into Washington from Hood River oregon. turned left to look at some sites down by swell City but didn't sit well with me. did some more checking and found this Avery spot. Passed on several good-looking side-of-the-road opportunities on the way here hoping the iO description was true. Its better.

Camping on the Columbia River, lots of space, boat ramp, picnic tables, pit toilet, FREE*!

CAUTION: be on lookout for stray fish hooks else you could be pulling one out of your child's foot or dogs paw.

* free is free during designated times. see images.

Nice place. right on the water. there is a winery you can walk to and walk back from. beautiful scenery. the one downside is we are right next to a railroad track and they blow their horn very loudly. I would guess more than a dozen trains throughout the night blasting their horn. This is available April 1st through October 31st. Seven day limit.

Stayed here for one night. Small campground clearly posted for seasonal use (day use only in winters and during commercial fishing season - whenever that is). There were several campers there. Yes - train is close and lows (why I carry ear plugs…). View to the Columbia River was great! A solid choice for a free night of camping

River & Trains. Both close. Both exciting to some. One honks human engineered loud disturbing almost everyones slumber!😠 But window wake-up is nice!🤙

Great place....if it wasn't for the train whistle 40 ft away every 20-30 min. died down after 1am for about 2 hours then they were back at it. trains coming from both directions all day & night. You have to cross the tracks to get into the camp so they have to blow their whistle before getting to the crossing which kinda sucks but I get it. Other than that, clean pit toilet, picnic tables, couldn't find any fire rings which I was surprised about. luckily I carry my own.

A good spot to stop, pit toilets, river access. it is about 40ft from the train tracks. Verizon service, we were about 10feet away from the Columbia. It is a treaty fishing area, so depending on when. expect some activity.
