Vancouver Lake Park is all you need to know about it

Vancouver Lake is found only west of Vancouver, Washington, United States, north of the Columbia River, and Portland, Oregon, south of Ridgefield, Washington, and the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge.

The lake is shallow, with a most extreme profundity of 12 to 15 feet (3.7 to 4.6 m) and a mean profundity of under 3 feet (0.9 m).[1][2] There is an island in the northern portion of the lake named Turtle Island.[3] The island was shaped from the tailings of an Army Corps of Engineers digging project, which dug around the edge of the lake in the mid-1980s. Lake River streams from the north shore to the Columbia River close to Ridgefield. Because of occasional variety in relative waterway and lake levels, Lake River encounters irregular stream inversion and streams into Vancouver Lake for extensive timeframes.

Stopping charges

Clark County Parks charges stopping expenses all year at Vancouver Lake Regional Park. Every day stopping expenses are:

  • $2 for bikes
  • $3 for vehicles
  • $6 for vehicles with trailers
  • $8 for transports or RVs
  • These are stopping charges, no extra charges. There is no charge for individuals who walk or bike into Vancouver Lake Regional Park.

During the bustling season, stopping charges are gathered from an expense corner and a stopping meter. At the point when the charge stalls are not staffed, park clients need to utilize the stopping meter.

Both expense stalls and self-pay stations acknowledge cash, coin, charge cards, Visa, and Mastercard. They don’t acknowledge checks, Discover, or American Express cards.
