Know Before You Go

- Motorized vehicles are restricted to roads and parking lots at posted speeds.
Nature and Culture
- Conservation: The campground is situated on a lightly forested benchland. Dry Gulch Creek cuts through this generally arid landscape creating a cool green gully alive with rustling poplars, birch and maple.
- Wildlife: Rocky Mountain big horn sheep and deer can often be seen grazing on the steep slopes of the glacial lateral moraines in which the park is set. The nearby Columbia Wetlands at the headwaters of the Columbia River are a birdwatchers paradise. Please view all wildlife from a distance.
