Various Options Exist in Nearby Towns: "Nearest Overnight Options" Conboy Lake National Wildlife Refuge Hotel Tip by glabah

Conboy Lake National Wildlife Refuge is like any other wildlife refuge: it is for the wildlife that lives here, and it is not set up for camping or other overnight stays by the general public.

However, there are several options in other communities or areas nearby.

Glenwood has a campground, and is located approximately 4 miles (6.7 km) northeast of the refuge headquarters road. This is your closest overnight stay opportunity.

Trout Lake is 10 miles (17 km) west of the refuge on Trout Lake to Glenwood Road. This community offers a few overnight options including campgrounds, and is a reasonably popular place due to rafting on the nearby White Salmon River.

BZ Corner is further south than Trout Lake, and an even more popular rafting center with several rafting companies and lodges located there.

Goldendale is approximately 35 miles southwest of the community of Glenwood, and is a reasonably good sized community compared to the several houses type of place that is common near the refuge. There, you will find grocery stores, small hotels, and other more civilized resources you may need.

White Salmon and Bingen are about an hour away, along the Columbia River. These are slightly larger communities than Goldendale.

Mount Adams and the Gifford-Pinchot National Forest is located north and slightly west of the refuge headquarters. Forest service campgrounds are available within the National Forest.
