- Nolte State Park is located on 117 acres with 7,000 feet of shoreline on Deep Lake with two fishing docks and a car-top-boat launch. The 200-foot unguarded swimming beach (with swim float) on the 39-acre lake is surrounded by a natural forest area making it very popular with visitors.
The lake is a popular fishing location both for stocked Rainbow trout and for moderate populations of native kokanee, yellow perch, catfish, and bass.
Park amenities include a 123-car parking lot, two miles of trail, a 15 mile interpretive trail. The picnic area has 60 tables, 20 pedestal stoves and three picnic shelters. The small picnic area may be reserved for groups up to 50 people.
Recreation - Picnicking, hiking, fishing, swimming, jogging, and bird watching are enjoyed in the park.
Climate - Washington's climate varies with each region. The Cascades split the state and alter weather patterns. Moisture bearing winds coming from the west give generous amounts of precipitation to the western slopes of the mountains, with wintertime snow above about 3000 feet. This area has an average annual precipitation of 87 inches and an average wintertime snow depth of 87 inches.
Average maximum summer temperatures are in the mid to high 60s with a minimum average in the mid 40s. Because of the elevation and distance from the moderating oceans, winter temperatures are much colder than those in in the Seattle area, with minimum temperatures in the 20s and maximum temperatures in the 30s.
Nolte State Park is located six miles northeast of Enumclaw, off State Route 169, in King County.
