Retreat centers

A map of Washington State showing the locations of state parks retreat centers

State Park’s retreat centers were established as youth camps in the 1950s for student outdoor educational activities. We now offer these lodges with clustered cabins and other rustic facilities to many groups looking for overnight accommodations with their outdoor recreational activities. Youth groups, schools, churches, families, business and many other groups find these accommodations in a natural environment a great way to gather.

Facilities vary in size and layout, and typically include:

  • One or more meeting rooms
  • Kitchen with equipment for preparing and serving meals
  • Overnight lodging
  • Exclusive use
  • Restrooms and showers
  • Modest rental rates
  • Access to outdoor recreational activities
