Tri-Cities Meet up at Horn Rapids CG

First Meet up for the Tri-Cities. More of a tail gate hang out. Let's introduce ourselves and eat some BBQ. I will bring a small BBQ and a few beverages. Feel free to bring whatever.

Horn Rapids has been owned by Benton County since the 1960s after having previously been used as an administrative facility for Hanford Site contractors and as an internment camp during World War II (“Columbia Camp”). Protected by over 4 miles of

Yakima River frontage on one side and the public lands on the other, Horn Rapids Park offers over 800 acres of transitional river-to-upland shrub-steppe habitat that is accessible and relatively quiet.

Horn Rapids is the only Benton County park where overnight camping is available. There are a total of 22 sites in the campground, and camping is offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Camping is $25 per night for a recreational vehicle and $15 per night per tent, with a maximum of 2 tents per campsite. Sites have full water and electrical hook-ups, and there is an RV dump station on the premises. There are also restrooms and showers attached to the campground. Horn Rapids Park is a recreational campground not a residential campground. As such, maximum length of stay at the campground is 14 nights.

In addition to the campground, Horn Rapids has a horse camp, model airplane facility, boat launch, and miles of multi-use trails. The park is renowned as a sanctuary for both quantity and variety of dragonflies and birds, causing it to be a bit of a destination for nature photographers and people trying to check different species off of their lists.
