Beacon Rock
State Park

Beacon Rock State Park is a publicly owned recreation area and natural history site on Route 14 in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area about 35 miles (56 km) east of Vancouver, Washington, United States. The state park covers 5,100 acres (2,100 ha), which includes 9,500 feet (2,900 m) of Columbia River shoreline and 4,482 acres (1,814 ha) of forested uplands. The park takes its name from Beacon Rock, an 848-foot (258 m) basalt volcanic plug next to the Columbia River. On October 31, 1805, the Lewis and Clark Expedition arrived here and first measured tides on the river, indicating that they were nearing the ocean.
