Palouse Falls State Park is a 94-acre (38 ha) Washington state park in the Palouse region of Eastern Washington, USA. It is named for the 200-foot (60 m) Palouse Falls on the Palouse River, which are part of the park. The state park was created in 1951 following the contribution of several parcels of land by multiple donors. Displays in the park explain the region's unique geology as well as its historical ties: the Palouse Indians and the Mullan Road both took advantage of the easy access to the plateau in the vicinity of the falls. The park has a short, ADA-accessible trail with falls overlook and facilities for picnicking and tent camping.
