Paradise Point State Park

Reservations: 888-226-7688
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.
History of the Area
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."

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
September 18 Ranger Issues / But Delightful Park Host
No Rating / 0 stars. We are avid campers and appreciate everything rangers do to keep the parks safe. We have enjoyed many washington parks and have created wonderful memories. But it is because of the ranger and noise, that Paradise point is one campground we will never be returning to. The ranger was condscending, confrotational and threatening. I have never felt so unwelcomed to a campground before. The Park Hosts however were nothing but sweet and and helpful.
July 31 A GOOD WEEKEND GETAWAY by Ron Fowler
We stayed in yurt twice, and found it very pleasant. Other than the sound of traffic on I-5, it was peaceful. Good trails for casual walks, nice field by the amphitheater, and some good music on a Saturday night.Wool be back!
September 3 Great park and trail
A little noisy due to the freeway being right next to the campground, however we camped in a spot that seemed real quiet in the back. The prices are also out dated. I paid $21 for a regular site.
September 2 terrible
This is the worst park that we have ever stayed in. It is right near the I-5, the noise was horrible. The campsites are also not very private. I will not be returning
June 1 Great place to camp by Harold
Kind of noisey by the freeway side but otherwise was great. My wife have stayed twice now, once in a tent and now in our motorhome. We had a great time both times. The hookups were good .
