The Little Known Park That Washington History Buffs Will Absolutely Love

If you’re knowledgeable about Pacific Northwest history, you’re likely aware that the Lewis and Clark expedition spent quite a bit of time exploring Washington. In fact, many of our landmarks, structures, and even counties are named after the two explorers. Lewis & Clark State Park is no exception — and while the park is separate from the official Lewis and Clark Trail, the area is loaded with local history.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Washington’s state parks are second to none. Here are a few more worth exploring.
