State Park
Blue Lake Regional Park is a public park in Fairview, in the U.S. state of Oregon. The 101acre park, near the south shore of the Columbia River in Multnomah County, includes many covered and uncovered picnic areas, playing fields for sports such as softball, and infrastructure related to lake recreation including swimming, boating, and fishing. Encompassing wooded areas, three ponds, and a wetland in addition to the lake, the park is frequented by migrating birds and other wildlife. Paved paths run through the park, which is near the 40 Mile Loop hiking and biking trail. Park vegetation includes cottonwoods, willows, and other trees and shrubs as well as wetland plants such as cattails.The 61acre lake, which lies in a small artificial drainage basin, has no natural inlet or outlet. Water normally enters the lake only from rain, surface runoff, and groundwater seepage. Excessive aquatic plant life and algae have sometimes restricted the use of the lake, and its maintenance includes plant control and addition of fresh water from municipal wells.

  • Pretty park next to the lake. Swimming area and splash pad. Lots of room for large picnics and gatherings. Their Independence Day celebration ends with a spectacular fireworks display.
  • Enjoyed blue lake for first time. The paddle boats was really fun. Next time I'll wear a sun hat because it was hootttt. The bathrooms were surprisingly clean. Trying to find parking wasn't that bad. Kids had fun.
  • Large county park with lots of grass and picnic areas. There is a very nice swim area in blue Lake as well. Well-maintained park with lots of parking.
  • Nice for family gatherings, picnic's BBQ'S. The park staff on staff are very accommodating, the gal opened the office on a Saturday so we could buy our annual park passes. Super nice.
  • Love this place! It can be very busy, but even in the busy times, the left end of the park is totally empty and peaceful ❤
