About: The Wallace Falls State Park Management Area is a 4,735-acre camping park with shoreline on the Wallace River, Wallace Lake, Jay Lake, Shaw Lake and the Skykomish River. Located on the west side of the Cascade Mountains, the park features a 265-foot waterfall, old-growth coniferous forests, and fast- moving rivers and streams. Cougars have been sighted several times near Wallace Falls, and peregrine falcons inhabit the rock cliffs of the Index Town Wall. The scenery is outstanding in this park, which includes numerous waterfalls, three back-country lakes and a river. Wallace Falls drops from a height of 265 feet. The park offers a rock-climbing wall eight miles east near Index. Atop Mount Pilchuck, 60 miles away, a fire lookout provides a spectacular, panoramic view. Swimming access is five miles east at Big Eddy.
