The Main Camping Area contains 3 long, slender "islands." The first island is the RV Strip (sites 1-16), which sits next to the green belt strip/island.
The tent strip/island (sites 67-70) gets the lightest use, but is popular with tent-mounted campers and camping vans.
The most popular tents sites are in the spur (sites 38-64) that forms a half-circle around the RV strip/island. See the MAP below.
The Camp Every County Crew's favorite camping spots were the two loops (sites 17-26 and 27-36) that are popular with both tenters and RVers. They are within easy walking distance from the Yakima River and other trails.
We found the massive Day Use Area to be more like an arboretum than the nearby Yakima Arboretum!
A special feature of the Day Use Area is the Juan A. Alvarez Outdoor Living Classroom with a short, paved ADA accessible trail and pier which enters a wetland area. This trail affords visitors a look at a living, working wetland.
There are over 140 species of birds in the Park, including the Hermit Thrush, the Western Tanager, and the Western Wood PeeWee (below):
