Why we love Lacamas Lake Park

Lacamas Lake

As the name suggests, there is a lake. It’s pretty big and it’s pretty awesome. At various points around the trail you can stop and play by the lake, stick fish or throw rocks in (whatever is your jam).

Yes, that is plural because there are several waterfalls worth exploring and they’re pretty darn decent. There is also a nice little viewing spot from a small dam pretty early when starting from the parking trailhead ( #instantgratification).

Heavenly Meadows

Visit in spring and you might think you’ve entered a different realm. The wildflowers are just epic and there are a variety of different trails you can take and explore this serene area. My kids loved romping around the meadow running through the flowerly trails.

Other things of note:

1. Awesome tiny playground at the trailhead ( in case you need to bribe your kids to walk back)

2. Restrooms

3. Paths are really well maintained.

4. Popular (especially in nice weather).
