Leidl Campground
  • Amenities are limited. Water is not available at the campground so please bring enough water for your party. The sites are large enough to pull trailers in, but there are no hookups. Pit toilets only.
  • There will likely be a fire ban in effect in Klickitat County, this means NO wood, charcoal or solid fuel fires or stoves of any kind. Propane stoves and firepits with a shutoff valve are OK. As of May 28th, fire ban in Klickitat County is scheduled to start on June 3rd, so we might be able to do a campfire this year!
  • Mosquitos are definitely a thing here, don't forget your favorite method of bug repellent!
