Steptoe Butte State Park

Steptoe Butte State Park is a 150-acre, 3,612-foot-tall natural monument. Thimble-shaped, the quartzite butte looms in bald grandeur over the prevailing flat lands.

The park is famous for its stark, dramatic beauty and the panoramic view it provides of surrounding farmlands, the Blue Mountains, and other neighboring ranges and peaks. From the top of the butte, the eye can see 200 miles.

Picnic & Day-Use Facilities
The park offers seven unsheltered picnic tables and four braziers for cooking, all available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Gazing at the panoramic view is the favorite activity of park visitors.

The butte summit features an interpretive wayside exhibit. Outdoor displays provide interpretation of the site’s natural history, surrounding and distant landscape features, the Cashup Hotel, which once stood on top of the butte, and the unique story of how this National Natural Landmark became a state park.
