“Clean and fun for the kids!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2011

If you;re into local history, or just have kids who like to run around and enjoy open space - Mud Mountain Dam could be for you!

Tons of activities and toys for the kids to play on, not to mention the wading pool with rain-dome. Picnic tables and shade trees aplenty as you kick back and relax near a modern marvel created by the Army Corps of Engineers.

A several mile hike is available down to a closer view of the dam. The hike down is relatively easy, and long - while the trek back is tiring being mostly uphill. If you have younger hikers with you, be ready for several small breaks on the way back up.

The dam really is a must-see for Western Washington, and completely free to enter and visit. It is quickly becoming a family tradition to visit in the summer.

“Nice Local Summer Destination”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2008

Great place to take my 8-year-old and her play-date buddies. Nice open stretches of lawn, shade trees, a little wading pool and a huge jungle-gym climbing structure.

Good covered picnic areas, though on weekends some of the other picnicking groups can get a little rowdy.

Fortunately there's plenty of room for everyone to have space.
