Easton State Airport is a public use airport located two nautical miles (3.7 km) north of the central business district of Easton, in Kittitas County, Washington, United States. It is owned by the Washington State DOT Aviation Division.

It was constructed in the 1930s by the federal government as an emergency field for DC-3s crossing the Cascades through Snoqualmie Pass. It was acquired by the state in 1958 to preserve it for future use. Easton remains as an important airport on the eastern approaches to Snoqualmie and Stampede Pass. Perhaps one of our most visited airports, it has the ingredients to make it a one-of-a-kind airport. This field has medium intensity runway lighting coupled with ample room for parking, camping, hiking, and just relaxing in the quiet of nature. There is a stream at the east end of the airport which runs as clear as any you have seen. A small store is approximately one mile south on the access road.
