Dry Falls State Park

Sun Lakes- Dry Falls State Park

One of the most popular state parks in Washington, Sun Lakes doesn’t disappoint with great weather 300 days a year. For many, it is all about the water activities like boating, fishing, swimming, waterskiing, jet skiing and beaching. Other than fantastic boating opportunities, this state park has the most hiking of anywhere in the Grand Coulee, 15 miles of trails. The park sits at the foot of the amazing Dry Falls, which always looks more impressive from below and offer some unique off trail hiking as well. In the fall and winter, the roads to some of the trails are even closed offering an even more remote hiking destination at the cost of a few extra miles of walking. Sun Lakes offers the usual amenities like camping, a kids area, an amphitheater, horseshoe pits, wildlife viewing, photography and picnicking. An easy walk from the campsites in the state park is the amenities of Sun Lake Resort. Sun Lakes Resort is a concessionaire within the park that offers a park store, laundromat, boat rentals, propane, firewood, cabins, a commissary, a nine-hole golf course and a miniature golf.
