This little gem has great accommodations whether you just want to relax and take in an occasional owl flying by or roosting in a tree above you or if you want to go and fish all day. It’s a pretty park to visit.

We were staying nearby and they allowed us to do a drive-they as long as we remained in the car. Lots of tent & RV sites - many with hook-ups. Nice boat ramp & picnic area.

We live in Moses Lake and go camping here at least twice a summer and more if possible. The park is very clean and well maintained, lots of grass and big shade trees Thirty minutes from home, can't be beat.

There are no designated paved biking trails, road riding and gravel trail riding only. The area is pretty flat, close to water, nice hills for mountain biking on south side. DO
