Wanapum Recreation Area (State park) Boat Launch

Two miles south of Vantage is Wanapum Recreation Area. The park's grassy, tree filled area features picnicking, swimming, boat ramp, trailer park and camping. This is a popular area for water skiing and soaking in the sun.

The boat ramp is concrete planks but in fair shape. The road to the boat launch is paved and striped. The campground in the park is within short walking distance. Wanapum Dam is just two miles south of the park. A fee is charged to use the ramp ($4.00). The campground provides full hook-ups.

From I-90 take Exit 136. Go south on Wanapum Rd for 3 miles. The park is on the left.
