Battle Ground Lake State Park is a forested camping park in the Cascade Mountain foothills; its proximity to Vancouver and Portland and its cool green lake make it a very popular escape from the bustle of city and suburbs.
The 275-acre park offers hiking, biking, horse trails and a primitive equestrian camping area. The spring-fed lake is attractive to swimmers and paddlers and is stocked with trout, making it a favorite of anglers.
Due to its popularity, Battle Ground Lake is getting some exciting new improvements! In addition to a renovated boat launch and dock, the lake will soon offer a separate, ADA-accessible fishing pier for added recreational opportunities.
