  • Bring food and water. The closest towns don't have fast foods or gas stations. North and South towns are between 1 - 1.5 hrs from Palouse State Park. All roads except for the 2 miles of road into the ...  more »
  • I decided to take a side trip on the way back to Seattle and check out this state park. Wow, way more than I imagined. The scenery from I 90 to the park itself was worth the drive. Absolutely beautifu...  more »
  • Its quite a sight to see these magnificant falls in the middle of what seems to be desolate countryside. Even in summer when the waterflow is much lower than springtime, there is enough water going ov...  more »

  • Really far out of the way from just about everywhere, but some would say that's a good thing. You have to go down 4 or 5 miles down a washboard gravel road to get there, but again - that's fun for some. You can't take a large RV or travel trailer in there, and depending on your motorcycle or if you're freaky about riding on gravel roads, it might be kind of tense for you. The falls themselves are pretty amazing though, and it's worth reading the history because it really adds to the experience to imagine all the water that once flowed through there.
  • Good photo opportunities. Nice fenced in areas for safety. Also some scary area's with only warning signs to keep people out. Which don't. Surprised it was a fee park, but a very well kept park.
  • One of nicest place on Washington state. Was at 3am on viewing area. So dark just hear sounds of falls. Made night photos with clear sky and beautiful stars. Took great Milky Way photos. Morning blue twilight started around 5am. Nobody was around. So great atmosphere on sunrise time and morning amazing falls sounds of falling water. Unbelievable
  • A must see state park. Beautiful waterfall with camping spots to enjoy the view. If you feel adventurous, there is a trail leading all the way to the waterfall. Word of caution, some experience is required to hike that trail some people have experienced injuries and some even death, so take it at your own risk. Other than that, best place to visit if you like being adventurous, and love enjoying the outdoors.
  • Beautiful waterfall but no way to get down to the waterfall without risking your life. Very primitive 2 miles of rough road you drive before you reach the small circular parking area. Don't even go unless you bring at least a soda and sandwich with you. I just think this is one waterfall you could pass on. There are so so many others in Wa. State!
