Lewis and Clark Trail State Park

Search Dayton Washington
The park is on the return route used by Lewis and Clark in 1806; thus its name. The park was originally homesteaded by the Bateman Family in 1864 and was a post-harvest locale for picnics and games by homesteaders.

The park is right on the Touchet River and features bird watching, camping, fishing, hiking, picnicking, sledding and as a base camp for big game and bird hunting. It is located 4 miles east of Waitsburg.

This park is not to be confused with Lewis and Clark State Park in Western Washington.
