Tours

Come discover the early history of Columbia County and witness the future of energy being made by Hopkins Ridge and other nearby wind facilities.

Puget Sound Energy's Hopkins Ridge Wind Facility is nestled between three bygone communities: Turner, Marengo and Covello. Many homesteaders carved out their living in this area. Now, only a few structures remain from these once bustling pioneer settlements.

Please call 509-382-2043 for information about scheduling a guided tour. You may also take a self-guided driving tour to view the wind farm and surrounding historical sites. If you care to get out of your car and walk the grounds, however, you must register. You may register online, at The Last Resort Kampstore, at Four Star Supply, or at The General Store. If you registered online, you will need to pick up the access permit at the store you selected on the registration form.

Hunting, hiking, bird watching, walking the grounds and other recreational activities are allowed on the wind facility by permission only. Please register here to enjoy access to the private lands that compose the Hopkins Ridge Wind Facility.
