The falls are stunning. You would not expect a sight like this to be located in the area it is in. The drive to the park is really cool as well. There are plenty of tight turns and hills to keep you on your toes....More

The surrounding landscape would give no clue that this beautiful oasis could exist. An awesome falls in the middle of nowhere. Like something out of a fantasy novel. If you're in the area, don't miss it. Unforgettable.

Lived in WA all our lives and have never seen it until last weekend. What a surprise--well worth the drive to see it. Had its own resident flock of turkeys, too.

Best in spring most likely, but impressive nevertheless. Decent trails around the top and to the bottom. Not much nearby to enjoy other than a couple other parks, which are nice too.

The falls were beautiful and the hike was really a hike. Well worth it for sure. I can't believe I have lived in Spokane my whole life and never been there. Will be returning for sure.

Friends suggesting visiting the Palouse Falls just north of Dayton and Walla Walla, Washington. The Falls are located a few miles off the main highway. It was an unusually warm day so the green spaces with grass and running sprinklers felt like a welcoming oasis....More

I combined the tour of Spokane and Falls. Great experience for first timer. Use the country road to go Palouse Falls so you could watch great scene. Huge farms with greenery like the wallpaper.

I have been wanting to find this gem for a few years and this year was the time to go. No disappointment at all. Simply beautiful falls in the middle of no where. Amazed that it is such a busy little park. We arrived at...More

Yes there is camping and that camp area is shaded with some of the only trees for miles. Very limited spots.

Trip adviser app has Google maps included. That's the best option. Most people drive south from Ritzville, but how to get there depends on where you start. I'd check the map.
