Kanaskat-Palmer State Park

Kanaskat-Palmer State Park is a 320-acre camping park on a small, low plateau in a natural forest setting. The park has two miles of shorelines on the Green River. Boat and raft launching is by hand only. River rafting and kayaking down the Green River Gorge is for expert-level enthusiasts only. Shoreline activities include nature appreciation, trout fishing, and picnicking.

Please note:  The local fire station uses a siren to summon volunteer firefighters for duty. The siren may be activated at any hour of the day or night and creates noisy conditions for campers and visitors. State Parks apologizes for the inconvenience.
