Hood Park is located on the shore of Lake Wallula in eastern Washington, across the Snake River from Pasco, and next to the town of Burbank. Wallula lake is formed by McNary Lock and Dam on the Columbia River. Lewis and Clark camped a couple of miles downstream at the confluence of the Snake and Columbia Rivers which is now the location of Sacajawea State Park.
The campground has 67 campsites which can accommodate tents, trailers, and RVs. Each site has electric hookups, a table, a lantern post, and a fire ring with grate. The campsites are fairly large and spread out throughout the campground. Large trees provide nice shade to most sites with manicured grass surrounding all the campsites.
Campground amenities include drinking water, flush toilets, hot showers ($), and a dump station. There’s also a nice playground, swimming area, and boat ramp.
The Day-Use Area has picnic tables, sun shelters, grills, flush toilets, water, swimming beach, playground, group shelter, horseshoe pits, basketball court, nature trail, and fish ponds.
Lake Wallula offers some nice boating, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, swimming, and other water sports. Other outdoor recreation includes hiking, biking, picnicking and wildlife viewing. the McNary National Wildlife Refuge is also next to the park and offers a great place to view a variety of waterfowl, bald eagles, and shorebirds.
