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.  

Park features

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.
