  • I hate rating natural attractions less than five stars. There was a three dollar fee to enter the area which made me hopeful it was going to be like other nature parks. After finding parking it seemed that there were many paved sidewalks and a concrete type enclosure for the lake. For being a paid natural attraction, it was pretty disappointing. I sat on a bench and Drew, and the quiet of the area was nice. If it were free it would be better.
  • The fishing is only junk fish the Co park is OK but the water I would not swim in it. In the summer it gets blue green alge that will kill dogs
  • Its Always a nice peaceful drive when I go. Good place to clear your mind.
  • I'm taking my kayak to this Lake along with my paddle board which I only had for a short period of time before I damaged it at this Lake. They have a pretty nice Beach which has grass most of the way from the parking lot but then there's some Sandy Beach. During the summer there's a cost to drive in and park your vehicle here. There is no cost if you can walk or bike your way here. There's a place to put the kayak in that is owned and operated by the department of Washington Fish and Wildlife. You need a permit to use that access which is on the south east corner of the lake near Fourth Plain. The lake is not very deep but it does offer nice room to paddle around and it is also connected by Lake Road which is a waterway that goes up to Ridgefield and into the Columbia River. There's an island in the middle of the lake and there's plenty of wildlife to see.
  • Really strange. It's super shallow way out into the water. But I went on an adventure into the forest with my dog. It was awesome
