Yakima Sportsman State Park is a state-managed public recreation facility located in Yakima County, spanning 247 acres along the path of the Yakima River’s floodplain. It was originally opened in 1940 as a private facility overseen by the Yakima Sportsman’s Association and was converted into a state park facility in 1956. Today, it offers a wide variety of seasonal outdoor activities, including areas for hunting, fishing, and camping at the park’s 266-acre campground park. The park is home to more than 140 bird species throughout its marsh, grassland, and pond habitats, including herons, hawks, and red-winged blackbirds. More than two miles of hiking trails are available for use, along with picnic and kitchen shelters, volleyball courts, and children’s playgrounds. An ADA-accessible trail and pier are also offered within the Juan A. Alvarez Outdoor Living Classroom facility.
