Covering over 52,000 feet of shoreline along the Snake River, Lyons Ferry Park is a popular summertime attraction for campers, boaters, water-skiers and anyone else who loves soaking up the sun along a riverbank.

Lyons Ferry Park marks the site of early settlements of the Palouse Indians. It covers more than a thousand acres and has plenty of freshwater shoreline on the Snake River. The park is a haven for boating, camping, fishing, hiking, picnicking, swimming and water skiing. With average summer temperatures in the 90s, it?s a cool shaded spot to find some relief from the sun.

The name Lyons Ferry is associated with a ferry once powered by river current. The ferry and its predecessors crossed the Snake River for 108 years, providing an important link for the Palouse country with the Old Mullan Road.

Lyons Ferry State Park is located near Pasco

May 7 One super nice Park by A. L. Leigland
This Washington State Park needs to reopen! This park is in a good location for all of our Eastside WA residents. Come on Olympia, open up some of our Eastside parks that you closed.
March 24 Why part of the park are closed.
The park was originally contructed by the Army Corps of Engineers for the State Parks with the agreement that the State Parks would run the facility. The State did that for over 20 years, then walked away from the park when the infrastructure became too old and expensive to maintain. Private companies have tried to run the park and have done so at a substantial loss. In June of 2011 the park came back under control of the Army Corps of Engineers, with the Corps having no funds set aside to run the park. That in addition to the fact that congress keeps slashing the Army Corps recreation budget is the reason that parts of the park remain closed. I agree with the previous person. Write or call your congressman!
May 30 Another Closed Campground
There are 1500 people working in that area that would gladly pay to camp- Construction people, but the parks are closed. Write your senator or congressman and ask why.
