  • Beautiful scenery of the basalt rocks. Fun to watch the rock climbers climbing the basalt towers!! Follow the toad down to the Columbia river where there are walking trails and a boat launch.  more »

  • I cannot speak highly enough of The Frenchman Coulee. I am not a rock climber, so none of my love for this place has to do with the sport. I just love camping, talking walks, hiking, and meeting interesting people. This is a deeply beautiful place where all that can be found. While there is no official campground, it's a great place to pick a tent (depending on where you camp, you don't even need a Discover Pass). There is access to the Columbia River. There are trails that lead through the desert ... I even found some sand dunes. And there is a waterfall that flows year round from my experience. I have stopped and camped here Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer. I love it!!!
  • Excellent place for rock climbing especially for new climbers getting used to the heights. Camping spaces are abundant, public restrooms, and great views. This is a good place for a quick weekend trip for climbing. Sadly there is very little bouldering.
