Field Springs State Park, near Anatone, WA


Synopsis

   
We only stayed one night at Field Springs State Park, which is located in the southeastern corner of Washington.  We were on our way to a reunion in Idaho, so we didn't have much time to explore the place.  The state park is largely open meadows with a few stands of deciduous and evergreen trees.  There weren't many people at the campground when we visited in the fall.  We heard the elk bugling loudly and watched turkeys roam the campground.  When it was time to roost, the turkeys flew to the tops of the trees, which was amusing to watch - such a big clumsy bird making its way to the tops of the trees.   The state park also has a nice trail that leads to the top of Puffer Butte, which is a nice lookout toward the open plains of Idaho and Oregon.
