Washington State Parks Image

Today a look at a very popular state park, just minutes away from Yakima’s downtown core. Often times overlooked, but very much appreciated by the people who frequent it, Yakima Sportsman State Park was created in 1940 by the Yakima Sportsman Association. It is one of the prime areas to observe many species of birds and animals, and Bald Eagles are known to winter in the area.

247 acres in size, the park has a variety of deciduous trees that shade camping and picnic areas.  Ponds lure fishers to the river. The park is a popular stay-over spot for travelers and visitors to events in the Yakima area.
