  • This place seems like the perfect spot to camp. They have small cabins and plenty of camp sites. Very well kept. The views are pretty nice. There's a small playground with plenty to do for little one....  more »
  • Really liked having water and electric at a tent site, was available because it receives a lot of RV plus boat visitors, which can be a little noisy.  more »
  • If you have a discover pass or investors pass, this is a great option for boat access. It also has a great fish cleaning station. My preference if fishing the west end of the Potholes.  more »
  • Been coming to this park for years, BUT not again. Overzealous park ranger treated us like we were con artists. We, being two 70 year old women, who were the ONLY campers in entire primitive section. I had reserved online and paid for two nights in camp cabin. He was eager to tell us how many infractions we had created....put us on defense when he walked up at 7:30 am saying we had not paid for extra car, she had come into the park very late, had the 10 dollars and envelope in hand. He would do better with asking how is your stay going, thanks for staying and using YOUR state park. How about some niceties ranger. You will find me at mardon resort from now on!
  • An oaisis in the central desert of Eastern Washington Awesome for fishing hunting and summer water sports
  • Great park, but the park ranger makes the experience frustrating and unenjoyable. They take their job beyond that of making it a safe and family place to that of ticketing you if you so much as look at them the wrong way. The park is great but don't get out of your truck for a minute in the wrong spot while loading your boat or parking your trailer without watching your back, they are waiting to make money off ticketing
  • I do not know the name of the ranger but he was quite short. Last Winter- almost Spring- Myself and other Disabled Vets stayed at the Potholes St Park only 1 night because the ranger seemed to have a problem with disabled Vets because We do not have to pay. He bashed us with questions that were not his concern or business. We did not get our D.A.V. passes out of a gum machine, We earned them. This ranger needs to be at a different job. We are going back and if treated the same --a letter will go out to the Veterans administration with a name on it.
  • Camp sites are kept clean. Same with the restroom. Park staff has been pleasant. Good lake fishing with bass and trout.
