PARADISE POINT STATE PARK
Paradise Point State Park is an 88-acre camping park with 6,180 feet of freshwater shoreline, immediately east of the interstate. Named for its original peacefulness, the park has lost some of its reputation for quiet since the freeway went in. Still, the area possesses great natural beauty, and the noise of I-5 can be avoided by using the woodland campsites.
Paradise Point State Park was acquired in six parcels between 1958 and 1986. Two stories claim credit for the park's name. In one story, local tribes used the area for encampment along the east of the Lewis River and called it "Paradise Point." In another, a motorboat club from Portland, Oregon used to travel to Kaner Rock on the Lewis River for river trips and camping. They called the quiet, peaceful area "Paradise Point."
