On the Yakima river in a beautiful little canyon between Yakima and Ellensburg. Some open spaces, some treed. Windy, as it probably often is in the canyon.

Stayed in this nice clean BLM park overnight. No charge after Sept 15th. Right on the small Yakima River. Lots of nice flat long back in spaces. Seems like there were only a few pull- throughs. Pit rest rooms, trash dumpsters. Dry camping otherwise. I stayed on a really windy night and being in a river canyon I'm sure the wind speed was higher than usual but still enjoyed the free site. I would probably pay the $15 in the summer if I enjoyed tubing on the river. 10 miles to shopping in Ellensburg.

| Beautiful easy canyon drive.

There is no dump / water, but otherwise this is dry river camping a its best. Paved level sites, some crescent pull-thrus. There is another BLM CG about eight miles back up the road, but it only has a few sites and is all gravel/mud. There is NO AT&T signal, OTA, or radio signal.
