Here are a couple of things you should know before you jump in the Columbia:

    • Columbia Riverkeeper regularly measures E.coli levels in popular Columbia River swim spots. Check Swim Guide to make sure your beach is safe to swim! 
  • Pick the best beach for you
    • Check out our “Top Picks” page and find out which beaches are best for kids, camping, or hosting a cookout!
  • Stay tuned and tell us all about it
    • Use the hashtag #ColumbiaRiverkeeper on social media to suggest your favorite beaches, share tips, and show us how you have a blast on the water this summer! Photos shared with the #ColumbiaRiverkeeper tag will be entered into our End of Summer Swag Raffle!
