Rainbow Falls State Park, 16 miles west of Chehalis, is a walker’s paradise. Miles of loamy trails wind through the forest and along the river, to a small cascade that throws rainbows of spray at the sun.
Tree lovers, maybe you’d rather see towering Douglas-fir, western hemlock and western red cedar trees from your bike or the back of your steed. Many of the park trails are mixed-use, and if you need more, take to the nearby Willapa Hills State Park Trail, a rails-to-trails fixture that goes over trestles and bridges, through forest, farmland and tiny towns.
The park has 40 standard campsites, eight partial-hookup sites, three hiker/biker sites, and two equestrian sites. There is one dump station, three restrooms, the campground restroom has two showers. The showers are token operated. The token machine is located at the park entrance station. Maximum campsite length is 60 feet (may have limited availability).
