Dropped our son off at College Orientation in Pullman and stayed down at Boyer Park and Marina for two nights in our RV. The drive through the Palouse was gorgeous. Very spur of the moment decision but luckily the park was not crowded (we stayed mid-week). We were pleasantly surprise with the park, restaurant and general store. Camp spots were level with most having full hookups (both 50 and 30 amp). River/Marina Views throughout the park. Grassy areas throughout. Fire pits with fires permitted.
Store/Restaurant were great. Store had anything you might have forgotten and we had two excellent dinners at the restaurant (which we REALLY weren't expecting).
Staff was very friendly, making us feel welcome from the moment we arrived until they gave us directions on how to get pack to Pullman.
We walked the Snake River Trail about 2 miles to Lower Granite Dam, visited the visitors center and watch the salmon making their way down the river. Worth the time. Saw a doe and two fawns, rabbits, and more quail than we could count. Late spring had all the flowers in bloom and we collected a beautiful bouquet for our picnic table back at the park. The dam visit was good (we live close to several dams on the Snake and Columbia so have been through this type of center before -- if you haven't, its worth the time) Also -- the park service conducts power house tours every 2 hours (we didn't chose as we had to rush).
Drove down and visited the dunes areas just down stream of the damn. Large expanse of beach with shallow water (all sandy) about 50 yards out to the river channel. We'll definitely come back with our boat to enjoy properly.
Overall a very good experience and one we will repeat.
