The main attraction of the park is the 198 foot Palouse falls which is most spectacular in the spring and early summer.

Palouse Falls State Park, in southeast Washington, is located six miles north of Lyons Ferry and 17 miles southeast of Washtucna. Two miles of gravel road lead to this park from State Highway 261.

Washington's climate varies with each region. The Cascades split the state and alter weather patterns. Palouse Falls State Park, located east of the mountains, receives significantly less rainfall than regions west of the mountains with an average annual precipitation of twelve inches.

Average summer temperatures are 94 degrees maximum and 50 degrees minimum. Because central Washington is landlocked and subject to winter winds, winter temperatures are much colder than those in western Washington.
