Tiny Doug’s Beach State Park is a staging area for the throngs of windsurfers who come here all summer long to play on the Columbia River. This is not a place for beginners since the swells can reach six to eight feet at times. There’s no water or camping, but it does have outhouses.
Doug’s Beach State Park is located 2.5 miles east of the town of Lyle along Highway 14, and seven miles west of Horsethief Lake State Park . Park hours are 6:30 a.m.–dusk in summer and 8 a.m.–dusk in winter.
