Located on the river in the very heart of the Yakima River Canyon at the Canyon River Ranch, we are a world away from the frenzy and traffic of the city. Upon entering the 27 mile long canyon you will be instantly transported to a truly magical place. The meandering river is framed by sheer basalt cliffs rising 2,000 feet above the river and breathtaking rolling desert hills.

The Yakima is the only Blue Ribbon trout stream in Washington, rivaling those in Montana and Colorado, and is a trout fisherman's dream. The surrounding canyon is filled with a myriad of wildlife. Big Horn Sheep, deer and elk can be seen roaming the cliffs and hills. Birders will enjoy hawks, eagles, osprey, great blue herons, pheasants, chukars, and more. The Canyon is an ecological and recreational playground.
The serpentine Canyon road hugs the river for the entire length of the canyon. Around every bend you will discover yet another remarkable vista. The activities and exploration opportunities are endless, but the drive alone will entertain and thrill beyond what you can imagine.
