Cowlitz Indians resided here and used an area above the bridge as a burial ground. Remains were removed before the flooding of the Mayfield Dam
. Remaining pioneer graves have been fenced to preserve their historical value.
The park was named for a Cowlitz Indian who represented his people. The park is on the north side of Mayfield Lake, with forested campsites available year-round. Enjoy many activities such as picnicking, boating, water skiing, fishing and driftwood collecting. There is also a half mile interpretive trail. The nearest town is Mossyrock at the eastern end of the lake.
