Exterior of covered picnic shelter and restrooms at Eagle Creek Group CG

This historic site was developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930's as a place to view construction of the Bonneville Dam. Great for family gatherings and other group events.

Set on a bluff with sweeping views of the Columbia River and the Washington side of the Gorge, this is site is great for family gathering and group events. The group site includes a covered picnic shelter, picnic tables, campfire rings, and portable toilets. It can accommodate 90 people and about 40 cars, including trailers. There are no RV hookups on site.

Hosts will be on site. Electricity is now on site but is limited to lighting in and around the building and a couple of 120 volt outlets in the restrooms.  

Noise can be an issue with I-84 nearby as well as railroad tracks.
