Washburn Riverside Park

This is a good place to stay if you want to visit the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center in Washburn. The park is small with a mile of river front property featuring a boat ramp, restrooms, picnic shelters, a playground, a Frisbee golf course, a paved trail, and a paved, pull through camping site.

The campsite is not marked but there is a sign between it and the playground. We parked in the gravel pull off by the playground to leave the site open for other campers which wasn't necessary because this campsite is not listed anywhere except on the city website so few people know about it.  The sign is missing contact information but the information is on the city website.  We stayed over Memorial Day weekend and did not receive an answer to our email or phone message. We spent a quiet night and morning without anyone visiting the park most likely due to the cool windy weather.

The paved trail is accessible as is the deck of a restored, historic ferry boat on display in the park. The restrooms and picnic tables do not appear to be accessible but we did not check them out.

The paved pull though site is long enough for any RV.  Park  47.28894, -101.03767
