About Reed Island

Reed Island State Park is a marine park located at the mouth of the Columbia River Gorge near Camas,  Washington.  This 500-acre-plus park offers boating, camping, short hiking/walking, fishing, wildlife viewing-mostly birds, and picnic tables.  This park is only accessible by boat so if you plan to visit Reed Island you will need to plan ahead to get to the State Park.

There are two basic campsites and two picnic sites both located on the Southwest shore of the island.  There is no potable water on Reed Island State Park  so you need to bring your own.  Also note that the island caters to small boats that can be beached on the sand shore here.  Reed Island is free of buoys and docks so keep in mind your possibilities for access with larger boats.  the sites typically cost under $30 during peak season and less then $15 off peak as of 2012.  You should make reservations first.


The island is just outside the port of Camas and can be reached by boat.  You can launch from the Port of Camas, WA and travel three miles east to the island.
