This great swimming area is located on Shepherd Rd. and it's only a few blocks to downtown Washougal. The beach is usually full of families, teens and children playing in the Washougal River. The river kinda splits there and there is an "island" there where children play in the "rapids." In the summer, the Sandy Swimming Hole is brimming with people seeking sun, sand and fun.
There is a community concrete deck that is nice and wide and has some picnic tables for people to relax around and watch the summer fun below. There is also some convenient extra parking located east of the Sandy because the road and parking lot becomes quite full and crowded with cars hugging the edge of the road. The speed limit there is only 25 because of all the traffic and people walking to and from the Swimming Hole.
Hope you can come and visit the Washougal River Sandy Swimming Hole one day soon. It's fun.
