Washington State Park retains many of its original buildings constructed in a rustic architectural style in the 1930s by African-American Civilian Conservation Corps stonemasons. In addition to a lodge, there are quaint stone hiking shelters, a picnic pavilion, and the beautifully laid stone slabs that make up the 1,000 Steps Trail. The three hiking trails at Washington State Park provide every experience, from an easy stroll with bluff-top views of the river to a vigorous excursion through 10 miles of rugged Ozark terrain.

Park visitors also can enjoy camping, fishing and swimming -- in a modern pool, or in the Big River. Available for rental are canoes and comfortable cabins with fully-equipped kitchens.

Washington State Park offers basic and electric campsites and a special-use camping area. On-season (April through October) services include reservable sites, a dump station, showers, water and laundry. Campers planning to carry in firewood must comply with current firewood advisories.

Campsites 1-31 and 45-51 are open year-round. Campsites 32-44 are open during the on-season. Reservations are accepted year-round, with the exception of sites 32-44 that are reservable for on-season stays only. For reservations, there is a required two-night minimum stay for weekends.
