We were on our own field trip after taking a geology course in Western Washington. The view was amazing. It was off season so we were unable to visit Visitor Center. You see 25% of the cataract complex from the parking lot (the other 75% lies out of view to the east).

Perhaps it is not the biggest canyon in the United States, but very interesting and original. From the Ice Age here remained dry waterfalls and a huge bed of the former river. To enjoy the view of the canyon it is better to start with a visit to local Dry Falls Interpretive Center, that part of Sun Lakes-Dry Falls State... More

If you're in Coulee city make sure you stop by and check out the view at the Dryfalls. It's absolutely amazing. I cannot believe that I've never heard of this place. I was there at Sunset and it's well worth it.After I drove south on the highway it's a beautiful place.

just off rt 2, dry falls is an interesting and educational stop. i'd heard about glacial lake missoula and the damage it had done. it was worth the stop to see the actual area impacted.

Disappointing visit. I was a very disappointing visit to the “Dry Fall”. The canyon is very small compare to what I have seen elsewhere in US. Don’t spend too many miles on this view. There is a small shop, who sells hot dogs for 9 dollars ! ! !

Following an overnight stay at Wenatchee we took what we hoped would be a more scenic route via the 28 and 17 on our way towards Coulee City. We were not disappointed and had a fascinating drive through an impressive canyon and attractive lakes before arriving at the Dry Falls. The Dry Falls are the remains of what was once... More

This was one of our favorite and unexpected finds on our trip around Washington. Go and watch the video in the interpretive center and then go out to look around. Great perspective, even as your drive away and can see rocks in the fields and understand how they got there. Had some great Huckleberry ice cream at a vendor!!

The geology and history of this place is incredible. Beautiful scenery, plenty of parking, very nice visitors center with gift shop. There is a food stand with everything from burgers to fish and chips, hot dogs, and ice cream. Plenty of picnic tables and areas to lounge.

To imagine the Columbia river roaring over these cliffs is hard to imagine today. But the signs are there, and what remains is amazing.... the huge open canyon that remains today is amazing to see, you can see all kinds of wildlife in the area, including Golden Eagles, which I did run into a pair of them a mile down...
