Great State Park...arranged nicely so neighbors aren't right on top of you. Well maintained....loved the amount of green grass. The lake this year is really low, lowest I have seen it in a long, long time.

Potholes is one of the nicest parks around. Beautifully maintained and lots of amenities. It takes a discovery pass or a 10 dollar charge to get in and it's a bit out of the way. I think this is a plus. Keeps it more for...More

I know most people come to Potholes to fish. I'm no exception. I have also taken my trailer down to camp. While it's certainly not my favorite camping spot, it is high on my fish list. The campsites are packed in like sardines. Yes, they...More

Plenty of camping locations for trailers or tents. Plenty of facilities to keep things clean. Great fishing, even if you don't have a boat. No brainer to spend a couple days exploring and relaxing.

Potholes State Park lies South of Moses Lake and is on the Southwestern end of the Potholes Reservoir. It's called Potholes because the landscape is filled with small lakes that look like large potholes. Beyond the reservoir is a wildlife refuge which you can visit...More

There are no designated paved biking trails, road riding and gravel trail riding only. The area is pretty flat, close to water, nice hills for mountain biking on south side. DO
