Climate - Washington's climate varies with each region. The Cascades split the state and alter weather patterns. Mount Spokane State Park, located east of the mountains, receives significantly less rainfall than regions west of the mountains with an average annual precipitation of twelve inches.

Average summer temperatures are 94 degrees maximum and 50 degrees minimum. Because central Washington is landlocked and subject to winter winds, winter temperatures are much colder than those in western Washington.

Location - Mount Spokane State Park, in northeast Washington, is located in 30 miles northeast of Spokane by way of U.S. Highway 2 and State Route 206.

Report: Bear Creek Lodge was sold in November, 2002. The new owners immediately changed the parking policy. The day use rate for cars is $5, and the rate for vehicles with trailers is $8. The parking fee must be paid prior to leaving a vehicle in the lot, and is redeemable for food purchases in the lodge's restaurant on the date of issue. Unregistered vehicles are subject to towing at the owner's exspense. Call 509-238-9114 if you have questions about the new parking policy.
