“Living so close to nature.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

What a great park that is literally minutes from downtown Spokane. This park is situated along the Spokane river and goes on for miles. Camping, hiking, biking, fishing, is all to be had within this well kept park.

“Beautiful Park, Just Watch For Snakes!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

The park itself is ideallic & beautiful, nature at it's best! However, if your not a snake lover you may want to for go this park. During our visit we saw some kids playing with some kind of viper, my mother almost stepped on a baby rattler, and when I was wading in the river I looked beside me and found a 4ft long garter snake sitting there watching me! Startled I fell backward into the water and the snake gracefully swam off down the river. I can honestly say I've never seen so many in one place:-(

Very nice trails along the river and a world class pedestrian foot bridge that gives great views of the river.

“Nice spot - Close to city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Beautiful spot - much better than crowded "parking lot camping". Friendly staff and clean sites. Saw some of the biggest Mule deer I have seen in years right near my site.

“Trails, trails, trails!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

Trails for hiking or biking along the roaring Spokane river through a Ponderosa filled canyon. Plus lots of cool rock formations. Oh, and the disc golf course is fun. There are a couple of first come first served campsites right on the river too.
