Where Is Goldendale, Washington?

The picturesque agricultural town is in southern Washington, nestled in a mountain valley, showcasing the Cascade Range Mountains to the west and Simcoe Hills to the north. About 13 miles to the south is Maryhill, WA at the eastern edge of the Columbia River Gorge

The region produces dry crops like wheat, which welcome visitors with sweet breezes and golden rolling fields. The lyrics to  “America the Beautiful” come to mind when envisioning the views from Goldendale vacation rentals:
"O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!"

Goldendale Outdoor Recreation

Adventure will always find you in a Goldendale vacation rental! The Little Klickitat River runs through the heart of the town and is a popular spot for family inner tube floats, birdwatchers, and fishermen alike. Bloodgood Creek is an especially popular place to hook a rainbow trout and the Columbia River is just 13 miles south, where you can wind surf, raft, and kayak! Cyclists across the country come for the quiet farm roads and to ride The Goldendale Loop, a 68-mile route that begins and ends in Lyle after traversing Goldendale's rivers and fields.
