Fort Simcoe State Park
A day-use heritage park since 1956, Fort Simcoe, located 27 miles west of Toppenish on SR-220, is a fascinating side trip and was entered in the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. Revealing much about army life in the mid-nineteenth century, it also offers insights into local Yakama Nation traditions in the 1850s.
The park has original blockhouses and officers’ homes, large, grassy areas for sports, picnic tables and a short hiking trail. Seasonal birding includes sightings of Lewis’s woodpeckers, owls, eagles, hawks and wrens; mammals in the park include bobcats, deer, elk and badgers
