Located 15 miles north of Vancouver and just east of I-5, Paradise Point State Park offers easy access to the Lewis River. Approaching the riverfront beach, you may be surprised by a Great Blue heron preparing for takeoff.
Despite the freeway above, the park with its freshwater beach is a known swim spot for local families, and it can be a great play day destination on summer afternoons. On misty mornings, the park has the feel of a wetland and makes for a picturesque stroll.
The park is an option for car campers who need a night of rest as they travel the Interstate. Paradise Point also offers cozy yurts backed by quiet woodland for overnight stays.
Paradise Point State Park is an 88-acre camping park with 6,180 feet of freshwater shoreline next to the interstate. The park offers unguarded swimming on the Lewis River and campsites in open grass or wooded areas as well as a small apple orchard.
The swimming area is on the east fork of the Lewis River. The swim area is an unguarded, no-wake zone.
A recreational license is required for fishing and shellfish harvesting at Washington state parks. For regulations, fishing season information, or to purchase a recreational license, visit the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.
