Schafter State Park outside Elma will be the site for the annual Yule Log Celebration at 1 p.m. Dec. 9.
Children will be invited to help hunt for the special yule log hidden in the park’s forest. Once found, participants will drag the log back to the community hall to gather around the fire and celebrate the season with hot spiced cider, music and holiday treats. Potluck dessert additions are welcome.
The park is a 119-acre camping park on the Satsop River. The river access offers park visitors fishing opportunities for steelhead, cutthroat trout and salmon. Wading and swimming in the shallow water during the summer make it an equally attractive site for family gatherings. Buildings are constructed from native stone.
It is 12 miles north of Elma off East Satsop Road in Mason County.
A Discover Pass ($10 a day, $30 a year) is needed to enter the park.
