If you read the bulletin board you would wonder why you came - rattlesnakes, ticks, hot weather, swimmer's itch, bees and Poison Ivy/Oak. If you go in March or early April the snakes, bees and ticks are asleep, weather is good for hiking, too cold...More

The campground itself is probably the worst in the state. I'm pretty sure that it was a private RV park before turning into a state run campground. As a result, the campsites are segments of a gravel parking lot. This presents a problem because the...More

The area is very nice but as campgounds go I would pass on this one. The sites are very close together with just gravel for decor. At this time of year (sept) the campground is almost empty and easy to see why.

I love this park, and there were virtually no people around when we were there last week. Deep Lake is beautiful, there are places to walk and I recommend it.

Drive into the park to "deep lake". There are bathrooms and a few picnic tables, but the real attraction is swimming in the lake. And cliff jumping. The day we were there in August (I'm not sure if water levels change during the year) there...More

We have lived in Washington state for years and didn’t realize this area existed. It feels like Utah or Nevada - desert-warm conditions, breathtaking canyons (which are more accurately dry falls - the canyon was carved by major flooding events during the ice age). A...More

Driving down for our first night in Kennewick, WA., we encountered a refreshing stop amongst the drive through fields, farm land and kilometres and kilometres of highway. This was no majestic mountain but a huge canyon or gulch that opened up to us when we...More

Rocky terrain but worth the trek. When we went not a lot of people and it was so serene. Highly recommend this park. The visitor center was worth it also.

Try Soap Lake, it has a few places to both stay and eat, and so does nearby Ephrata, and the drive up the Grand Coulee to get to Dry Falls from there is outstanding.
