Battle Ground Lake State Park

18002 N.E. 249th St.

Battle Ground Lake State Park is a camping park with 280 acres of beautiful, forested land in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. The lake itself is of volcanic origin and is considered to be a miniature version of Crater Lake in Oregon.

This park offers 5 miles of horse trails and a primitive equestrian camping area. The spring-fed lake is stocked with trout and is a favorite of anglers.

This is a great location conveniently close to the Portland metro. All kinds of amenities, including showers, lots of potable water access, cabins, and RV hookups. Great swimming and sand area for kids at the lake, and easy access for launching kayaks and other small water craft. Nice loop trail around the lake. Quite a few people play music at the park, and it's not the prettiest campground in the NW, but hard to beat for convenience and facilities.

It's a beautiful Lake. Good fishing, good swimming. My only complaint is it's just too expensive you got to pay to get in pay to launch your boat $17 an hour to rent a kayak. Was a lot better places you can go for free around that area.

Fun place with lots to do. Paddle boards, kayaks for rent. Camping sites and a few cabins for rent. Pretty small boat ramp but there is a roped off swimming area perfect for younger kids. You feel farther away from the city of Battle Ground than you really are.

This my idea of heaven on earth. I have been enjoying Battleground Lake for a long time , i do mostly swimming, but there are a lot of people on various floatation devices ,in boats with either powered with electric motor or paddles only ,so the water is clean & warm. I love it.!! Its nice to have summer back. Yeah!

Lower lake loop is easy, dont forget your big spray and there are trees to climb in between and rocks and roots in the trail. It was rough find the trail so I'd suggest starting on the right side of the lake where it is well marked. The upper trail is a bit more of a work out, the trail starts out wide, but narrows considerably. The upper trail ends in the campground, if you wak down the campground you can get back to your car if parked in the lot by the lake. This campground also has cabins to rent and only dummy locks the front gates at night.
