Nolte State Park is a 117-acre day-use park with 7,174 feet of freshwater shoreline on Deep Lake in the Green River Gorge. Covered with forests and blessed with water, the land was a resort for many years before it was donated to State Parks.
History of the Area
Formerly a vacation resort known as Deep Lake Park and owned by the Nolte family, the area was donated in the early 1970s to the state of Washington by Minnie Nolte, for whom the park is named.
The park has no camping.

The park provides two kitchen shelters without electricity, plus one sheltered and 50 unsheltered picnic tables. Kitchen shelters are reservable for groups of up to 50 persons. There is a fee plus a damage deposit. Make reservations at the park office, 360-825-4646.

May 11 Amazing History by doublet
This park is amazing, the history of the park and the community will be with me always. My mother is the last living Nolte in the family, she is now 93. We would drive from Seattle every weekend to the lake. The early family had to stay out at the lake when Small Pox was running rapid in the early years.


Located north of the town of Enumclaw, Wash., at the western edge of the Cascade Mountains.

From east of Enumclaw: On SR 410, turn north on 284th Ave., S.E., (look for sign) and continue approximately seven miles to park entrance.
