Celilo Park

Near The Dalles OR - Celilo Park is owned and operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and is a small, well established park on the banks of the Columbia River. Celilo Park offers free camping for RV camping and tent camping with a 14 day stay limit. The park offers flush toilets but no showers. The mature trees offer plenty of shade on summer days and picnickers are often found at the park. On windy days Celilo Park is typically crowded with wind surfers. A paved public boat ramp is available at the west end of Celilo Park and the park is close to convenience store shopping, fast food and gas in Biggs. Open year round but reservations are not possible. Tracks border the area, so expect to hear some trains. <br /> <br />IMPORTANT: As of August 21st 2020, due to Covid, there is a sign saying the use of the park (celio, OR) is restricted to day use only. Please update us if this situation changes. <br /> <br />Comment from 3/2019: <br />Celilo Park - Stopped here to let my dog out. Saw other tent campers on what appears to be state land. No signs said no over night camping. Parking lot is big enough for rvs, lot is paved and there are bathrooms. Right on the Columbia river off of I 84, 30 mins from the Dallas. <br /> <br />Dec 2021: USACE parks in the Columbia Gorge are seasonally closed for camping November 1 through March 31st
