Sunset at Fishook Park

Find Your Happy Place at Fishook Park in Eastern Washington

Fishhook Park, a popular destination for fishing enthusiasts and boaters, is a busy, but scenic spot. The 46 acre park is near the Tri-cities area in Walla Walla County and is clean and overall well-maintained. The park features a playground area, RV parking, beautiful views and a swimming beach. The beach however is pure rock and has a lot of plant growth in the surprisingly clear water. The boat launches are convenient, making the area hard to book during peak seasons. It’s a great spot to take your family camping, but beware the showers are not the cleanest.
