Wallace Falls State Park

Wallace Falls State Park is great place for family camping and hiking.

Washington is known around the world for its forests, lakes and waterfalls, and not many places showcase these icons as majestically as Wallace Falls State Park.

A hiker’s paradise, Wallace Falls offers 12 miles of glorious foot trails. Let your feet (or snowshoes) take you up the Wallace River to powerful  Wallace Falls, with its three tiers of water rushing over rock and timber. Along the way, climb the trail to the lower, middle and upper viewpoints, and watch the waterfall tumble into the clear pools below. Up for a longer hike? Either head down an old logging road, or follow the Greg Ball Trail over several miles and junctures to Wallace and Jay lakes.  

Have gear and craving more fresh air? Stay overnight in one of two private first-come first-served, walk-in tent sites, or reserve one of the park’s five comfy cabins. Backpacking equipment, stamina and a permit from park staff open other exciting options: two lakes, 5 and 6 miles from the trailhead, offer quiet backcountry camping.
