“Perfect for a day camping trip”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

This place has everything for a simple camping trip. There aren't many spots so make sure you try to time your dates for less busy times. There are also about 5 miles worth of trails and some gorgeous views! For those living in Pullman, it is the perfect place to go for a little bit different atmosphere to the wheat fields as it is wooded. There is a great little playground for the kids and an extensive day use area for picnics and family gatherings. I was surprised to learn that there is an ampitheatre in the park for the occasional show or presentation. There is running water and bathrooms in the park, but no showers. The biggest down side is that from late May to early September or October, there are no open fires permitted as the area is just too dry and the risk of a wildfire too great. Briquettes and Propane are allowed though so cooking isn't a problem, just no fire to sit around at night.

“Best hike on the Palouse.”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

A great hike in any season... Especially fun in the winter.... If you like cold /snowy weather. A steep path and a comfortable but longer path to the high point are available.

A lovely hike! I hiked the primitive trail and completed the entire loop in less than 2.5 hours. Very lovely. Good for family hike.

“Great walk/ great views”
Reviewed 14 January 2014

I've been hiking Kamiak since 1968. A nice walk in the woods on a wide trail (fire access road) and then when you reach the ridge a hike along the ridge to the peak. The loop trail comes down through the woods back to the parking lot. Worth doing in almost any weather or time of year.

“Great day trip for families!”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Kamiak Butte is a great park for families. We have 3 young children (aged 6,5, and 3) and they have been able to make it to the top (with some assistance here and there) many times over the past 2 years. There's a short trail and a long trail to get to the top. We've only attempted the short one as a family. There is a great park at the base which we of course stop and play at.
