History of the Area
Maryhill State Park was acquired by lease from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in 1972 at no cost. Sam Hill, considered a local eccentric, built a "castle" for his daughter, Mary, on a hill, and named it "Maryhill." He designated the beautiful building, originally designed as a family home, as an art museum before the end of its construction. Mr. Hill built a full-scale partial replica of England's famous Stonehenge one mile from the state park. He also tried unsuccessfully to establish a Quaker colony in the community in the years preceding World War II. Both Stonehenge and the Maryhill Museum of Art are open to the public.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
August 11 One of our Favorite Parks! by Vickie Melton
This park is perfect for swimming, camping boating and all day picnicing! I give it a five star rating!
April 22 A wonderful wonderful place!
March 21 Great place!
We have been here before and stayed in the group site with a number of friends. Beautiful park, great place. We will be coming here again this year for a weeks stay.
August 6 Weekend Chaos
Maryhill is a very nice park. Serious lack of enforcement of rules on weekend in day use and boat launch. Chaos is an understatement, people park, swim, fish from boat launch.
July 29 We go several times a year
Love it here - if you like hot, sunny and windy this place is for you! Grass eveywhere. Columbia River is right there. Truck traffic and trains can be loud but you quickly forget about it.
June 5 Our favorite park
It is one of the best kept secrets of the NW. The grounds are well kept and the shade from all the trees just make it one beautiful place. We make it a point to spend a couple of weeks a year. Thanks
August 5 We have stayed here many times, beautifu by from Calif.
