  • This is now the best park state or city the Yakima valley has! They have brand new water systems , bathrooms deluxe showers for campers or visitors and for even anyone who needs to come in for use of the restrooms and showers ! There are new private restrooms and showers ,handicap services and many play areas for kids ! Also has great walking trails, horse and bike trails and covered BBQ areas ! This is the best park to date!!
  • Decent campgrounds, bathrooms aren't too exciting, or terribly clean. One shower house works, with tokens, which have to be purchased from main gate station. From looking at the map, I thought our site (31) would be close to easily do some fishing. But it turns out you have to hike a ways down to get to a river access. Kind of a small park, but thankfully it was pretty empty when we stayed (mid October). It was nice to have a Wal-Mart close by.
  • Great place for friends and family! An even better place to can a year's worth of food. Grab a camp site, bring your canning gear and head out to all the local farm for fresh food, and pick it yourself vegetables. You know what's in them so it tastes even better when you open them later!
  • Get a discovery pass, visit often in this secure park... They have camping available. Firepits ( bring wood from the terrace heights 7-11 perhaps.. no gathering ). Horseshoe pits... i think they still have them... i wounder if the ever added the 9 hole frisbee golf? Showers, bathrooms, sheltered picnic tables with wood or charcoal above ground grill... good for parties.
  • WATCH OUT FOR SPEEDING TICKETS. this is a beautiful park but the rangers will happily give out a $140!!! speeding ticket if you drive above 10mph on the internal roads. have fun, enjoy the lovely park but DRIVE SLOW.
