Alta Lake State Park

Welcome

Alta Lake State Park - BEST Places to PicnicAlta Lake State Park is a 181 acre camping park located in the mountainous northwest interior of the state of Washington, United States. The park and adjacent lake lie beneath towering stone cliffs, formed by glaciation, that rise 1000 feet (304 m) above the valley floor, and carry on up to the top of Old Goat Mountain which sits 4200 ft above the park.

The lake is about 2 miles long and .5 miles wide. The park has 2 miles of hiking trails. Popular activities at the park are sailboarding and golf at the nearby Alta Lake Golf Course. Although quite small, this park is a very popular summer camping location. There is also a sizable number of houses along the golf course and lake that are either primary or vacation residences.
