From river to field, Flaming Geyser State Park is alive with sounds of joy. As rafters and kayakers glide past its banks, an array of model airplanes sail and swoop, controlled from the ground by their hobbyist pilots, over an area of the park set aside for such fun.
Set on a glorious stretch of the Green River east of Auburn, this suburban jewel known for radio-controlled aircraft flying activities, offers wooded hiking and horse trails, expansive fields for play, places to view the fall salmon runs and enjoy sublime summer swimming, fishing and just hanging out.
Flaming Geyser, a day-use park, is centered around a unique geological feature, a "flaming geyser," or cluster of once-active methane seeps. The flame no longer burns because of the depletion of its methane source. But the history of the flame, told in interpretive panels at the location, will pique park goers' curiosity about the living nature of planet Earth.
With four group picnic sites, this is also the place to hold a company barbecue, birthday party or family reunion. Each site accommodates 50 people and can be reserved for a special occasion.
Flaming Geyser State Park is a 503-acre day-use park with more than 3 miles of freshwater shoreline on the Green River.
