Nature of the Area
The town of Black Diamond and the surrounding region, including the park, is one of the main coal mining areas in Washington. The park's underlying coal seams provide the gas for the Flaming Geyser and the Bubbling Geyser.

Flaming Geyser State Park has existed on this location since the 1920's. Operated as a private park into the 1960's, it fell into bankrupcy. State Parks rescued it from conversion to home development and has operated it as a park ever since.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
August 5 Rudest rangers ivce ever encountered
while I understand the leash law. I had two dogs on a leash and my 8 month old puppy was standing in the river off leash. No warning or anything just heres your ticket. While people are across the river taking shots and pounding beers theyre treating me like a criminal. Nice park other than that. Im not the only one whos encountered rude rangers there.
April 18 Stop the freeloaders by Edgar Covey
I have not seen a single day pass or annual pass displayed in any vehicles parked at the RC airplane parking lot. And they are getting out and walking around.
January 25 Nice for a walk, short hike with kids by Kim
We walked a nice short loop above the parking areas. Then walked on road to Bubbling Geyser and Flaming Geyser trails. Both were open, a bit muddy, but not too bad. We did see a small flame and even a little bubbling at Bubbling Geyser. Small toy area was open, but lots of standing water.
