Riverside State Park is a publicly owned recreation area located 9mi northwest of Spokane in Nine Mile Falls, Washington. It is the largest state park in Washington, covering some along the Spokane and Little Spokane rivers. The park is managed by the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission.HistoryThe park came into being with various gifts of land in 1933 and 1934. It was developed by members of the Civilian Conservation Corps. Evidence of the CCC's work can be seen at the Bowl and Pitcher area's suspension bridge, kitchen shelter, restroom, park residence, office, and maintenance shop. CCC workers also constructed the rock walls and much of the roadway of Aubrey White Parkway, the restroom on the Centennial Trail near the Carlson Trailhead, and various trails in the park.FeaturesAreas of the park include the Bowl and Pitcher, the Nine Mile Recreation Area, the Little Spokane River Natural Area, the 600acre off-road vehicle park, the equestrian trails area, and a portion of the 37mi Spokane River Centennial Trail. The Spokane House Interpretive Center has exhibits about the Spokane Indians, early pioneers, fur trappers, traders, the area's fort and military history, and Spokane House, the fur trading post established nearby.

  • 5 stars for trails and day use. 4 stars for camp ground absolutely no privacy. Very clean area. Trails are very nice. There is a short set of stairs on other side of bridge but other then that great for bikes. Went in late October saw more lady bugs then I have ever seen. Could hardly avoid stepping on them.
  • Nice recreation area, in close proximity to the Nine Mile Falls community. Parking is available just up the hill from the ranger station​, and is typically half full. Riverside State Park offers mtn bike trails, rock climbing, hiking, and is the starting point of the well known Centennial Trail! Always a pleasant area for an outdoor adventure.
  • Took the fam to The Dirty Dash today. Lots of mud, and fun. Had a blast.
  • I love the variety at Riverside State Park. Whether you are a walker, hiker, runner, mountain biker, road biker, horse rider, kayaker, rock climber, you will find a spot to enjoy here. Find a local guide to help you find the spot that fits your interest and abilities.
