Sacajawea State Park in Franklin County, Washington is one of the Washington State Parks.[1] It consists of 284 acres (115 ha) with 9,100 feet (2,800 m) at the confluence of the Snake and Columbia Rivers. The park is generally day-use only but does have one campsite reserved for paddlers as part of the Northwest Discovery Water Trail. Available activities include hiking, boating, fishing, swimming, waterskiing, birdwatching, interpretive activities, wildlife viewing, and horseshoes.[2]

This place was named for the Shoshone scout of the same name who guided the Lewis and Clark Expedition. She was married to French-Canadian interpreter and explorer, Toussaint Charbonneau.
