Lewisville Park - Lewis River



Lewisville Park is located in Washington State's Clark County on the East Fork Lewis River about two miles to the north of the city of Battle Ground. Often considered the main park of the county, the 154-acre park consists of a 2.8-mile trail system meandering through meadows and forests.

Developed in 1936 along the East Fork of the Lewis River, Lewisville Park is the oldest park in the Clark County of Washington State. It still owns historic buildings constructed at the end of the 1930s. Lewisville Park was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.

Stretched out along the river shore, the park has various picnic tables, multiple playgrounds, picnic shelters, covered kitchens, a boat launch, and a large baseball field. With the perfect mix of sun and shade, the park is also home to a multitude of swimming holes. Activities outdoor lovers can do here include swimming, wading, boating, picnicking, hiking, fishing, horseshoeing, and much more.

Swimming

For families with younger children, the sand and pebble beach of the Larch area is perfect as it affords easy wading and swimming. A good swimming hole with a small beach can be found along the East Fork at the north edge of the park. Please be advised that there is no lifeguard on duty, currents can be swift and water depth varies at different spots on the river.

Picnicking

Lewisville Regional Park is a truly family-friendly location. It has an abundance of facilities for small families as well as for big groups to enjoy their time together. The park got a total of 147 picnic tables along with 13 picnic shelters with a capacity ranging from 20 to 200 people. Picnic shelters have to be reserved in advance and the reservation fee is between $50 and $150 depending on the shelter size.

Fishing

Fishing is another favorite pastime in the park. East Fork Lewis River is home to many types of trout and salmon. Anglers have an opportunity to catch steelhead, chinook, coho, chum, and other species.

Hiking

Lewisville Regional Park has a 2.8-mile trail system leading you through meadows and forests. While those trails are easy for an experienced hiker, it is perfect for a relaxing weekend stroll for the entire family.
