Surrounded by 410 wooded and wetland acres, the park slopes down to the 70-acre Anderson Lake and abounds with birds and wildlife. This remote, forested day-use park is surrounded by 410 wooded and wetland acres. Set on a lake, the park is abundant with fish, birds and wildlife.
The park combines freshwater marshes with cedar, fir and alder forests.
Prior to becoming a state park, Anderson Lake was owned by William F. Anderson, who used the land around it to graze his cattle. Curiously, the lake was not named for him or anyone in his family. William Anderson purchased the property in 1947 from Amanda Anderson, who, though not a relative, shared his last name. Anderson Lake was named for one of her ancestors.
Watercraft launch site reopens the last Saturday in April.
There is one boat ramp (for boats with electric motors only). Be advised lake water is 25 feet at its deepest spot.
A daily permit is available for watercraft launching at the park.
The park is open seasonally for lowland fishing of trout (last Saturday in April to August 31). Catch and release only is permitted September through October.
