Daroga State Park

1 S. Daroga Park Road
Orondo, WA 98843

509-784-0229

Mauve-colored hills rise from the Columbia River, and poplars line glassy Lake Entiat below. If not for the scent of sage floating through the air, Daroga State Park could be in Southern Europe.

Located off Hwy 97 between Winthrop and Wenatchee, Daroga offers a green oasis amid the dry rolling hills of this central Washington landscape. At the park entrance, take in dramatic views, then drop into the park and find a welcome mat of green lawns rolling down to a small beach.

Life at Daroga centers around a lagoon that is perfect for beginning swimmers and paddlers. The section of river beyond makes the park a destination for boaters and water sports fans.

Stretch out on the manicured lawn, and let the kids play tag. Wade with them into the shallow waters. Walk up the hills of the park to enjoy panoramic vistas, and breathe in the scent of sage and desert flowers. Or simply sit by your tent or RV and watch the hills turn sienna in the setting sun.
