The Dry Falls scenic overlook is always worth stopping, but when the visitor center is open, it is mandatory. One could easily spend an hour reading the various exhibits and watching the videos, or staring out the windows at the magnificence of Dry Falls. It is only a ten minute drive down into the base, near Dry Falls lake, for... More

Yup bears. I wouldn't have believed it myself if I hadn't found tracks. Well that just adds to the adventures. The area is beautiful but I would say off trail hiking should be left to those in pretty good shape and up to some rough country.

Just beyond the busy campground there is an incredible view point that cannot be ignored. On Highway 17 near Coulee City is this gem. Morning sunrise is a total stunner, you might believe you have transported in time. Anytime is awesome view time. The big State Park (Sun Lakes is one of the best hiking, biking and wildlife areas in... More

We visit family in the area and a stop at this state park is a must. The first lake has a nice roped off area and is next to the camping cabin area - this is a great spot for families, particularly with little kids as you can keep them within eyesight. We often go to Deep Lake and jump... More

I love it here! My husband and daughter came with me and we all had a lot of fun. I went bird watching (great place for it!), while my husband an daughter went metal detecting (one of the few places you can actually go in the area). There are multiple places to swim (not fine sand, but not rocks; somewhere... More

Stayed at the Sun Lakes state park, but that gave us access to the resort. The resort was run down. The mini golf was like golfing around a bunch of toxic cesspools.

Our five families booked three sites last minute. There's a reason this campground had openings on an August weekend... First: the spots are small & there is no privacy. You have to pitch your tent on gravel/dirt. That's a bit of a bummer, but okay. There were so many aggressive wasps that we literally could not have food out on... More
