Crow Butte Reopening Guidance

The response to COVID-19 has created a consistently evolving situation, and the Port of Benton will continue to monitor and abide by Governor Inslee’s orders as they apply to reopening of similar state parks, campsites, and boating facilities.

Crow Butte Park will remain closed for camping until further clarification is received from the State of Washington and because Benton County remains within Phase 1 of the “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order.

If you have a camping reservation from now until June 8th that has already been paid, please know that it will be fully refunded.

We appreciate your continued patience, please check back weekly to check status.  We hope to see our campers soon!

Should your reservation be canceled due to COVID-19, you will be refunded in full. Day use and boat launch use, with the practice of social distancing, will begin on May 5th, 2020. Overnight camping remains closed until further notice.

The Port of Benton reserves the right at any time to close the park for the health and safety of visitors and staff.

Discover Crow Butte Park


Welcome to Crow Butte. We invite you to enjoy the amenities, wildlife and recreation that Crow Butte has to offer. The 275-acre park is on an island located in southwestern Benton County in Washington. The island was created by the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers as part of the McNary Dam project in the late 70s.

Crow Butte is nestled along the majestic Columbia River. The park has 50 full-service campsites, a playground, three boat launches and a boat basin accessible via motor or river traffic.
