Three miles east of Maryhill Museum of Art, just off HWY 14 and near the original Maryhill town site, stands a full-scale replica of England's Stonehenge built by museum founder Sam Hill. Stonehenge Memorial was built as the nation’s first WWI memorial. It was dedicated in 1918 to the servicemen of Klickitat County, Washington, who died in the service of their country during the Great War; it was completed in 1929 and re-dedicated on Memorial Day of that year, when 14 local service men were honored by having their names placed on the pillars of the Memorial. Samuel Hill’s crypt is located a short walk southwest of Stonehenge on a bluff overlooking the river. The site is open daily from 7 a.m. to dusk. Admission is free. See more..

Great local art, vintage and crafts
Spent < 1 hour Speciality & Gift Shops
Best art and vintage shop in Goldendale. The art is a selection of antique and vintage as well as a few local artists, but mainly an outlet for owner, Sandra Choate’s fiber and mosaic art. Her studio is in the back. It is usually open Wednesday through Saturday from 12 to 5, but often open other hours. If you stop by when she is not open just give her a call and she will usually come in to open up. See more..
- 4.0 Maryhill State Park (27 reviews)
Spent 2-3 hours State Parks
We stayed at the Peach Beach RV park next door to here. Got to walk through this wonderful place with our dogs. Very clean, shaded, with wonderful views of river. You will get road noise because the interstate is right across the river, but we were still able to sleep fine. There are boat launches & wonderful RV spots. If you are here during fruit harvest time you MUST stop at Gunkle’s fruit stand walking distance away. I included a pic of it too. Stone Hedge War memorial & Maryhill Museum of Art are all within a few miles of here See more..

- 4.0 Goldendale Golf Club (1 review)
A fun and friendly golf course!
Spent More than 3 hours Golf Courses
We had the best time at this very well maintained 9 hole golf course. The staff and all players we met were very friendly. The course has some challenging slopes but plays well. And the views of Mt. Adams were spectacular! See more..
- 3.5 Brooks Memorial State Park (12 reviews)
Great for stargazing
Spent 1-2 hours State Parks
We've camped there twice, both times in a fifth-wheel RV, most recently Memorial Day weekend in May of 2018. These sites (RV) are all far enough from highway 97 that traffic noise was not an issue. the sites themselves are adequately roomy, but not large by State Park standards. There are hiking trails and evening programs, and the campground hosts were friendly and helpful. There are full hookups, and everything worked as promised. The major negative was lack of good cell-phone service, which seems to be more important all the time. See more..
- 3.5 Dwinell Country Ales (6 reviews)
Tasty Little Brewery Off the Beaten Path
Wonderful little brewery with a large variety of tastes. We ordered a flight with a dark and wheat as well as two very different sours. We really enjoyed the patio and the beer. Definitely a gem off the beaten path. There is a food truck outside. See more..
