County Park with a very nice reception space you can rent, swimming areas for different ages, access to water for bigger boats. Near enough for easy access but far enough to feel like an adventure.

A little bit out of the way off I-5 but a tiny little public swim access might be an ok stopping point. Smaller than tiny might be the best way to describe it as there is almost no real beach and only a few tables.

Deep clean water, oh yeah! Plenty of room to explore. Toys for children to climb on, wash rooms. Bring your floaty and join me out on the lake!

It is a wonderful park but too busy in the summer to visit. In the off season explore the upper part not just the water front. Don'rt miss the water fall if it's been raining. Whatcom County Park Dist keeps this place in excellent condition....More
