OLYMPIA–Washington State Parks has rescheduled its public meeting to share recommendations for long-term recreation and land use for three state parks in southeastern Washington.

The meeting, originally scheduled for Oct. 5, will take place virtually on Tuesday, Oct. 19. Additionally, two in-person meetings will be held next month in two southeastern Washington towns.

The parks, Palouse Falls, Lyons Ferry and Lewis and Clark Trail, are located in Franklin, Whitman and Columbia counties.

The meetings will focus on preliminary long-term boundary and land-use recommendations at the three parks, including:

Proposed permitting process for Palouse Falls State Park to protect the land and reduce risk of overcrowding.

Proposed removal of campsites from Palouse Falls State Park, which would repurpose the park as day-use only.

Proposed addition of camping to Lyons Ferry State Park, a 5-mile drive from Palouse Falls with better amenities and more active recreation opportunities.
