Sun Lakes-Dry Falls State Park is a 4,027-acre camping park with 73,640 feet of freshwater shoreline at the foot of Dry Falls. Dry Falls is one of the great geological wonders of North America. Carved by Ice Age floods that long ago disappeared, the former waterfall is now a stark cliff, 400 feet high and 3.5 miles wide. In its heyday, the waterfall was four times the size of Niagara Falls. Today it overlooks a desert oasis filled with lakes and abundant wildlife. Originally called “Dry Falls,” Sun Lakes was renamed to better describe the area. Victor A. Myers, lieutenant governor at the time, suggested the change.
Sun Lakes-Dry Falls State Park is a 2020 Park Improvement Project Grant recipient.
