The Priest Rapids Wildlife Area is a unit of the Columbia Basin Wildlife Area and consists of 3,202 acres of land. It is located south of Sentinel Gap along the east bank of the Columbia River.
Fascinating flora and fauna are in no short supply. Songbirds, shorebirds, wading birds and more can all be found in this charming wildlife area. Keep a lookout for massive flocks of Canadian geese during the winter months. The riverbanks of the dramatically fluctuating Priest Rapids Pools can be seen slowly developing a fascinating riparian habitat.
The recreation area includes campsites and a boat launch.
