Boat Ramp Information for:
Hamilton Island Boat Ramp

 

Site Type:
Boat Ramp

Short Description:
The Start of the Columbia River Water Trail

 

 

Long Description:
This is where the Columbia River Water Trail begins. There is a large parking lot here. You are allowed to leave your car overnight, but it isn't necessarily recommended.

Bathrooms are the pit toilet type. No water is available here, but you can get water at the nearby town of North Bonneville. There is a short hiking trail between the two spots (Otherwise, it's a 1.5 mile drive on roads).

Currents are swift just below the dam, and you are not allowed to travel upstream of the boat launch ramp.
