Did you know?
Pike and bass are the most common species fished out of Thompson Falls State Park, but you may find a surprise species if you’re lucky!
While fishing and hiking are popular in Thompson Falls, this state park is used mostly for camping and picnicking. Host to 18 sites and a group picnic area, this riverside campground is great for tent or RV camping, but make sure your trailer is no more than 30 feet!
Let’s get outside!
Curious what other visitors have had to say about the park?

“Awesome state park. The most kind and helpful staff I have ever met, really nice lake to swim and fish in. Nice washrooms, dish washing station, running water. You can hear the cars on the highway loud and clear but if you can deal with that this is a great camping spot.”
