central,washington,color,home,page | Where to Go | Easton
Easton, the first town east of Snoqualmie Pass, is home to a few unique businesses and ample recreation opportunities. The Easton saloon parking lot is often packed with snowmobilers in the winter. The Parkside Cafe & Turtle Lounge is another popular spot.

In the summer, people flock to 516-Acre Lake Easton State Park to boat, fish, hike, and test the lake's cold water. The John Wayne Pioneer Trail runs along the southern edge of the park and into town, which is about a mile from the lake.

In the winter, snowmobilers, cross-country skiers, and sledders play in the old-growth forest surrounding the Yakima River and the lake, which is a reservoir of the river. The state park and an RV park along the shore of Lake Easton are popular for camping in the summer, and reservations are often necessary on weekends at the state park.

For a town with slightly fewer than 500 residents, Easton throws a big party on Memorial Day weekend. The parade on Railroad Street is one of the best in the country. The celebration started in the 1990's and has included a pancake breakfast, street fair, live music, raffle, talent show & car show.
