The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has temporarily limited access to the west portion of Avery Park, to day use and walk-in only. 

Vehicle access is restricted due to damage from a wildfire that burned shoreline vegetation, resulting in erosion and the potential for unsafe driving conditions. The east portion of the park remains open for camping and vehicle access. The Corps does not yet know when the western section of the park will reopen. 

Avery Park is located along the Columbia River near Wishram, Washington at milepost 93 along Washington State Route 14.  Please contact The Dalles Lock and Dam park ranger office at 541-506-7857 for questions or concerns and visit http://www.nwp.usace.army.mil/Locations/ColumbiaRiver/TheDalles.aspx to explore further recreation opportunities in the area.
