Hood Park sits on Lake Wallula in eastern Washington. The lake was formed by the McNary Lock and Dam on the Mid-Columbia River. Visitors can enjoy camping, fishing, boating, hiking, picnicking, and swimming. Hood Park offers 67 family sites and one day-use group picnic shelter, all with electric hookups. The campgrounds lie along the banks of the lake, offering sweeping panoramic views of the Washington wilderness.
Lewis and Clark camped a mere two miles downstream from the area, at the confluence of the Snake and Columbia Rivers. This is the present-day location of the Sacajawea State Park.
The McNary National Wildlife Refuge is right next to the park, and provides habitat for migrating waterfowl, bald eagles, shorebirds, and other wildlife. Nature trails and an environmental learning center are open to the public.
