Lake Sylvia State Park

Explore the Great Outdoors

Featuring 15,000 feet of breathtaking freshwater shoreline, Lake Sylvia State Park is a retreat from the ordinary. Perfect for a retreat of fishing, hiking, and day trips, this 233-acre camping park began its life as a logging camp before its donation to the State Parks Commission in 1936. Nature-loving guests will be intrigued to find preserved history, such as preserved logging gear, massive old-growth stumps, and a record-breaking giant wooden ball, carved from a single log. Adding to the rich history of the area, Lake Sylvia's beauty makes for the ideal escape to nature, just minutes away from our Montesano hotel.

The park includes a half-mile of ADA-accessible hiking trails, and five miles of regular hiking trails. Popular activities at the park include non-motorized boating, freshwater fishing, swimming, bird watching, and mountain biking. Additionally, Lake Sylvia State Park has an ADA fishing dock and playground equipment; a recreational license is required for fishing and shellfish harvesting at Washington state parks. Equipped with ADA-compliant facilities including the campgrounds, restrooms and hiking trails, Lake Sylvia also provides a kitchen shelter with electricity, one sheltered picnic table, and 75 unsheltered picnic tables.
