Palouse Falls State Park is a 94-acre (38 ha) Washington state park in the Palouse region of Eastern Washington, USA. It is named for the 200-foot (60 m) Palouse Falls on the Palouse River, which are part of the park. The state park was created in 1951 following the contribution of several parcels of land by multiple donors. Displays in the park explain the region's unique geology as well as its historical ties: the Palouse Indians and the Mullan Road both took advantage of the easy access to the plateau in the vicinity of the falls. The park has a short, ADA-accessible trail with falls overlook and facilities for picnicking and tent camping.

  • Great place to visit. Convenient parking and easy access to great views. There is also a quick hiking trail available in close proximity.
  • It was a windy day but it was fun place to visit for a couple hours. There is a hike you can do down to the river but with no view of the waterfall. Not much walking at all to see water fall. I am not sure if they have a hike to the lower part of the falls, but it did not look like it.
