Rainbow Falls State Park is a 139-acre (0.56 km2) State park in Washington, located near the town of Dryad. The park features 3,900 feet (1,200 m) of freshwater shoreline on the Chehalis River, as well as some of the last standing old-growth trees in the Chehalis Valley. The park's main entrance, a pair of vehicle and pedestrian bridges across the Chehalis River above the falls for the which the park is named, was destroyed by flooding in December 2007, and visitors currently access the site through what appears to be a new permanent entrance at the rear of the park.

The park features 45 tent spaces, 8 RV hook-up spaces, restrooms with showers, a group space that can fit approximately 60 people, and a dump station. The park is first come, first serve, and is open year-round.[1]

The park also features approximately 10 miles of hiking trails, but access to these from the camping area requires a short drive, as there is no pedestrian access from the camping area.

The park, along with several log structures on the premises, was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1935.
