Photos: Rainbow Falls S.P.
The "falls" is actually a ten foot drop in a very beautiful stretch of the Chehalis River. It is not so much for the waterfall watchers as it is soothing and relaxing.
The State Park changed dramatically in the December 3, 2007 floods that extended from PeEll to Centralia, washing out bridges and roads, killing both people and livestock.

... and post flood.
The campsites vary
from small to large, walk-in to bike-in, individual to group, back-in to
ride-iin, and equestrian to hiker-in:
This campground is quite old, and the sites are intended
for tent campers and trailers less than 20' in length; larger trailers
are not recommended.
The Group Camp can accomodate up to 60 people, but receives some road noise from Leudinghaus Road and the Day Use Area.
The Day Use Area is one of the nicest in the State Park System, with vintage touches from the Civilian Conservation Corps:
Ten miles of old growth forest trails lie at the south end of the park, once connected to the camping area by the footbridge.
The Doty-Dryad area is a producer of high-end artisan cheeses:
