Paradise Point State Park
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.
The park's proximity to Interstate 5 and long sandy beach make this a popular swim spot for local families, and the disc golf course 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 101-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.
