Just a stone’s throw from Oregon and a hop, skip and a jump from Idaho, Fields Spring State Park lies in the Blue Mountains of far southeast Washington. Unlike the water-centric state parks of western Washington, Fields Spring is densely forested with a diverse variety of native trees, wildflowers and wildlife.
In the summer, you can tire yourself out on miles of hiking, biking and running trails. When winter rolls around and a thick layer of white snow blankets the region, activities switch to cross country skiing, snowshoeing and even tubing down a well-groomed hill. Whatever time of year it is, Fields Spring State Park offers plenty of activities to get you out of the house and into the wild.

History of Fields Spring State Park
This volcanically originated park was named after Mr. Fields, an early settler who developed a spring used by himself and neighboring settlers. The park is set along one of the Nez Perce Indian seasonal migration routes.
Puffer Butte was named for Mr. and Mrs. Puffer, homesteaders who every morning climbed the neighboring Peterson Butte to watch for Indians passing in the canyon below. If Indians were spotted, the Puffers moved their livestock to the top of Puffer Butte and left them there until the Indians passed through.
In 1974, 70% of the park's Douglas Fir and White Fir were damaged by a Tussock Moth infestation and had to be removed.
