  • one of the nicest campgrounds we have stayed in. excellent tv reception for those rainy days. will definetly stay here again  more »
  • Full Hook ups, Clean showers, Nice staff. Close to town and services. Not a lot of shady spots for keeping cool, and no real water feature to cool down either.  more »
  • We recently camped overnight at this park. It seems that apartments have recently been developed around this park. So at one time, it may have been more secluded. If you are visiting with young kids, ...  more »

  • YAKIMA SPORTSMAN STATE PARK is a nice park. It's nothing to write home about. It's a clean park, the bathrooms are clean. Some of the spots actually have shade. After just leaving the OlympicPeninsula it's hard (not) to compare the two areas. YAKIMA is an irrigated dessert. The park could use better signs, to get you going in the right direction, its not real clear. The man at the main gate was very friendly and helpful. We're in #17 which is probably one of the nicer spots. We have a shade tree, which I consider GREAT, since it's going to be right around 100 degrees today.
  • Nice place to stay. Pros: very very clean bathrooms, very secure, easy access to trails, and close to downtown Yakima. Cons: tight pull through sites, minimal views from the RV.
  • Quiet, beautiful and well kept park - hidden gem among the state park system. Lots of easy trails that the kids and I travel throughout the year. Plenty of birds for bird watching and interesting foliage for nature walks.
  • A perfect weekend getaway. Some of the nicest, cleanest public restrooms I've ever seen, and the campsites are large enough to get some privacy from the other campers. Great for tent camping, RVs, and day trips.
  • This state park is a real hidden gem in Yakima. Beautiful forestry, nice camping spots, fishing, and miles of trails just across the river from downtown. Easily one of my new favorite places.
