Nolte State Park

Six miles northeast of Enumclaw, off State Route 169, in King County.

Park Hours
Summer: 8 a.m. to dusk.
Winter: Closed Oct. 15 to April 12.

The park is open in the summer for day use only.

117.23 acres with 7,174 feet of shoreline on Deep Lake.

The park was acquired in two parcels; the first in 1972 and the second in 1973, at no cost.

Historical Background
The park was named in honor of Minnie Nolte who donated the major part of the park to the Commission. Originally purchased by the Nolte family in the 1890s, the land was gradually transformed into a private resort known as Deep Lake Park. It offered swimming, boating, camp kitchens with stoves and cottages. The resort was operational until it became a state park in 1972.

200 feet of unguarded beach with swim float, 2 fishing docks, a car-top-boat launch, 60 tables, 20 pedestal stoves, 3 picnic shelters, residence, shop building, park aide cabin, carport, 123-car parking lot, 2 miles of trail, .15 mile interpretive trail, a 39-acre lake, and tool storage buildings. The small picnic area offers reservations for groups up to 50 people.

Of Special Interest
A swimming beach on a small lake surrounded by natural forest areas have made this site popular with the local community for over 50 years; first as a private resort and most recently as a State Park. The lake is a popular fishing location both for stocked Rainbow trout and for moderate populations of native kokanee, yellow perch, catfish, and bass.

Picnicking, hiking, fishing, swimming, jogging, and bird watching.
