In the 70s and 80s, however, the potential for recreational opportunities grew, and a larger budget was allocated to develop that.

Professor George Beck taught geology at Washington Normal School in Ellensburg (now Central Washington University). He frequently would take his students on trips to regions with known geological features and instruct them to search the area for unusual features. It was on one of these trips that Beck found a tree log made out of stone. A few short years later, in 1935, the area was established as a state park.
