History of the Area
This volcanically originated park was named after Mr. Fields, an early settler who developed a spring used by himself and neighboring settlers. The park is set along one of the Nez Perce Indian seasonal migration routes.

Puffer Butte was named for Mr. and Mrs. Puffer, homesteaders who every morning climbed the neighboring Peterson Butte to watch for Indians passing in the canyon below. If Indians were spotted, the Puffers moved their livestock to the top of Puffer Butte and left them there until the Indians passed through.

In 1974, 70 percent of the park's Douglas fir and white fir were damaged by a Tussock Moth infestation and had to be removed.

September 27 Perfect for families, and gatherings by Montana gal
This campground was perfect for our family camping trip. The bathrooms were well kept, the camp sites were clean. The host and staff were very helpful. And the view from the trail was stunning!
June 24 Favorite place in WA! by BearNWolf
Went in May and absolutely stunning with the green from recent rains and all the wildflowers blooming. Very, very clean and well kept campground. Only 4 other campers on a Friday night the weekend before Memorial Day. Highly recommend to others!
May 25 Nice
Very nice and clean. Very quiet. No cell service with ATT. Have a lot of short trials and a long trail that leads out to Puffer Butte. It has an overnight lodge.
