Lake Easton State Park is a forested, 516-acre year-round camping park with 24,000 feet of freshwater access on the shores of Lake Easton in the Cascade Mountain foothills. The park has beautiful mountain views and hiking trails to explore in the summer and cross country and snowmobiling trails to enjoy in the winter. The park's location also allows for snowy winter-sport opportunities. Year-round recreational opportunities abound in this beautiful park, which offers a swimmable beach and a boat launch.
History of the Area
The park is located within a glacial valley in the Washington Cascade Range. The Northern Pacific Railroad built a tunnel through the Cascades beginning at Easton.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
July 18 Nice park but...... by Teresa
Not enough parking space at site,fire ring was too close to parking and noise from I90 was extremely loud.
August 11 Super Nice! by Alan and Tracy
This is one of the nicer parks we have gone to. Very nice grounds and restrooms, they are very clean also it is very well maintained & secured. Keep up the good work.
July 8 An instant favorite by Brass Moose
Campsites are pleasantly among the trees and well kept. The beach and playground are clean and gave my child alternate play activities. Friendly staff and well patrolled. Only downside was slight highway noise (no big deal) and the camping area mens room was a mess (the beach restrooms were very clean, though). For us, it is so close to Seattle, it is a no-brainer. Will be going back many times.
