Mud Mountain Dam Park, located in the foothills of the Cascade Mountain Range in Western Washington, is the perfect place to have a family picnic and enjoy various outdoor recreation activities. The Picnic Vista offers unique playground equipment, like a zipline and wading pool, as well as large fields for sports. Over six miles of trail can be accessed from our trailheads in the park and along the entrance road. For more information, visit our official website .


Many families come to Mud Mountain Dam Park to have a picnic and enjoy the outdoor recreation features. A two foot deep wading pool allows children and parents to stay cool in the summer heat, while others play on playground equipment that is hard to find anywhere else! For visitors that are more nature oriented, go for a self-led hike on the Rim and River Trails to catch a glimpse of a Bald Eagle flying overhead or Elk browsing in the forest. Mountain bikers and hikers are welcome to use any of the trails, but horseback riders should limit their rides to the River Trail at the current time. Park Rangers are available to offer their knowledge of Mud Mountain Dam and the local area, as well as provide unique water safety activities and tools to the visitors. 


There are two reservable large picnic shelters located within the Picnic Vista. Electricity, grills, restrooms and water are available at these shelters. Gas and grocery stores are available locally in Enumclaw, WA before reaching the park.

Natural Features

Mud Mountain Dam Park is nestled in the foothills of the Cascade Mountain Range, providing views of Mount Rainier and other popular focal points. Most of the year, the White River flows naturally through Mud Mountain Dam. During the Winter and early Spring, visitors may notice that there is a reservoir as water is held back to prevent flooding of areas downstream of the dam. 

The trails wind through old and new growth forests containing various trees, including maples and evergreens, that tower over visitors and provide habitat for the local wildlife.

Nearby Attractions

Be sure to stop in Enumclaw, WA to experience the unique art and food that the town has to offer before or after you visit the park.
