  • 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.  more »

  • Boy this place is beautiful ♡♡ went cliff jumping and met a lot of cool people! The camping looked crowded but nice- lots of families. Very pretty landscape ( I love basalt rocks columns and landscapes) I really want to camp here!
  • This is a hidden gem for campers. Lots to do in the area. Fish is all within walking distance. Biking on paved roads. If your in area you must stop and stay awhile.
  • Dry Falls is a little known geological wonder of Washington state that compares in awesomeness with other greats such as the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone. Stop off at close by Soap Lake and learn about its history which also dates back to the last North American ice age. The driver between Soap Lake and Dry Falls is breathtaking.
  • Had the whole park to ourselves! Great place for kayaking and paddle boating! Had Excellent time! 10$ for the day or discover pass $ 30 for the year
  • Beautiful place, very good views and nice lakes. Not a lot beyond that however - not many trails that we could find. The weather was also very windy, so be sure to have a sturdy tent or be prepared to lose sleep. The sight was worth seeing though.
