Recreation - Activities at the park include boating, camping, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, interpretation, motorcycle and ATV riding, picnicking, snowmobiling, cross country skiing, and bird watching.

Climate - Washington's climate varies with each region. The Cascades split the state and alter weather patterns. Riverside 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 - Riverside State Park, in northeast Washington, is six miles northwest of the Spokane City Center at the Junction of State Route 291 and Rifle Club Road.
