General Information

Description - Yakima Sportsmans State Park covers 246.65 acres with 19,116 feet of waterfront on the Yakima River. The park offers 120 picnic sites, two picnic shelters, 28 standard sites, 37 utility sites, 2 comfort stations, 1 outdoor fireplace with kitchen shelter, a trailer dump, a shop/service building, and two hiker/biking sites. Of the total sites listed above, 2 are ADA campsites (1 with utilities, 1 standard).

Recreation - Activities at the park include bird watching, camping, fishing, hiking, picnicking and playground equipment. Ponds in the park are for juvenile fishing only. The river is open to adults in season.

Climate - The climate of Washington varies within each region. The Cascades split the state and alter the weather patterns. The terrain east of the mountains, which includes Yakima Sportsmans State Park, receives approximately 12 inches of rainfall per year, generally much less than west of the mountains. Since the area east of the mountains is landlocked, temperatures in this region are lower during the winter months. Frequent winds coming down from the mountains also contribute to the low temperatures of eastern Washington.

Location - Yakima Sportsmans State Park, in south central Washington, is located in Yakima County, one mile east of Yakima off Interstate Highway 82.
