Camping with cats - Great place to camp by the Touchet River. Amazing sunset one night. Hiking trails are easy for the adventure cat to take a walk. Good cell reception. Nice shade with tree cover.
4/27/2021 5:32:22 AM Sun Lakes-Dry Falls State Park by Kathy_M
it will do in a pinch - Sites are very small and close together, there is some shade in some sites. You are not allowed to put a tent on the grass, you have to put it in the gravel. There is a charge if you have 2 cars even though they state that you can have 2 cars in most sites. The staff can get very busy on weekends and are less helpful. The boat launch is a distance away, not a short walk if you carry things to your boat. do not leave items in your boat There is a fee for a boat site at the dock but worth it not to have to launch every day and there is a fee for that as well. There is no launch site for kayaks or canoes other than using the very busy boat launch or the swimming area beach. There was adequate ATT cell service. This is not the best that Washington has to offer but is not terrible.

Best park and cleanest - My Father in Law took our kids there over the summer, years ago. It was the cleanest quietest park ever. We were very sad when it closed It has been years since it has been open, so lets open this one again and close a different one please.

Thank you ever so, much - You are preserving an absolutely, but simple place that I, Smalls, may continue To be, feel and remember my mother For this, I am eternally grateful,

unique wonder - It is disgraceful how the parks dept has let this park dry up....such a unique sight, but now looks unkempt and unloved. You would think someone could turn on some irrigation and mow this small park....

Needs maintenance - Discovered this park as a fishing venue when I lived in The Dalles a few years ago. I still come here and enjoy the trees and the water, but am disappointed now in how the place looks since the COVID scare. A real pandemic would result in EVERYTHING being shut down. Weeds in parking lot need to be removed. Discover Pass and dog leash enforcement are needed at this time also to help ensure personal safety.

History - My Father worked for the state parks . His family Homesteaded land just a few miles from Millersylvania. He built alot of picnic tables and did alot of logging of trees in that area. He was born in 1912 and his family new the Millers.

Closure - We went to the park today Tuesday 1 October 2019 only to find that it was closed. Apparently it will be closed on Mondays and Tuesdays now. Website stated it would be closed on Mondays and Tuesday beginning 2 October 2019 NOT 1 October 2019. Though it was only a 45 minute drive there it would be nice if the park follows its own guidelines.
8/17/2019 3:34:07 PM Lake Wenatchee State Park
Pleasantly surprised - My wife and I tent-camped here midweek in August. This is a very nice, well-kept campground with clean restroom facilities, pay showers, ample water spigots and a great beach on beautiful Lake Wenatchee. We were surprised by the lack of flies and mosquitos. The constant wind may be the reason. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely return. The only downside for me is the lack of privacy as many of the sites are fairly close to each other.

Atta girl for Kimberly Cox - Ms. Kimberly Cox was very helpful in making our recent family camp out at the Manchester group RV site a success - she went out of her way, took extra time, and promptly responded to some special requests and concerns that our group had regarding our stay. Thank you Kimberly You are a Cut above and the kind of person that our beautiful Washington State Parks should be represented by

Summer is a bit ambiguous . . . - On a recent trip, May 18 to 25, through Washington and Idaho, we discovered parks and museums may trigger seasonal openings for Memorial Day weekend. Turned out to be a bummer at Farragut State Park, where we pre-paid for five days of museum visiting at the park and in the area. Ginko S.P. lists hours for Summer -- Can we count on a visit during our return to western Washington on May 24
