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.

  • Riverside is a treasure! We are so fortunate to have it. Hikers, mountain bikers, horse riders all enjoy this area with it's natural beauty, great trails and wildlife!
  • It's great! But a discovery pass to enter a park just to take a walk...........i guess they have to get a buck where they can, just seems stupid to pay for that kind of thing. It wasn't worth paying for and frankly I would've rather not have paid for it.
  • Great place to ride, huge variety of trails, singletrack, duel track, and paved roads. Family friendly. Make sure to get a Discover Pass for the day or year.
  • There's a variety of trails for every experience level. Great for taking kids and dogs on hikes. The view is absolutely gorgeous!
  • 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.
