Fort Simcoe Historical State Park consists of 196 acres in the Yakima Indian Reservation. The day-use heritage site is primarily a historic preservation effort. Fort Simcoe is part of the National Register of Historic Places because it is one of the few pre-Civil war forts that remain in the west.

The park has 0.8 mile of hiking trails, as well as an Interpretive Center, museum, volleyball field and two horseshoe pits. A wide variety of birds, like the Lewis’s woodpecker, can be spotted at the Fort Simcoe Historical State Park.
The Park is closed in the winter from October 31 through March 31.
