For a closer look at Dry Falls, we visited the state park. Entrance is usually $10/day, but it was free today. There are lots of small lakes, a resort with cabins, 2 campgrounds, several picnic areas, trails, an environmental learning center, and a golf course....More

We didn't camp, just came for the view and education. The overlook is spectacular. As you look out at the dry cliffs, you get a feel for what this waterfall must have looked like at the end of the last ice age. Over 20 miles...More

What's better than a beautiful state park with an enclosed visitor center and clean restrooms? A great coffee and breakfast/lunch/dinner stop too! If you haven't made your way along central Washington's highway 17 lately, you're in for a treat: breathtaking scenery, and Dry Falls Bistro!...More

I was expecting to get sun-sorched, but was pleasantly surprised that there was an air-conditioned observatory and information center. There were also restrooms with water, though they weren't kept clean. Outside was a food and an ice-cream stand. Just what I needed.

Try Soap Lake, it has a few places to both stay and eat, and so does nearby Ephrata, and the drive up the Grand Coulee to get to Dry Falls from there is outstanding.
