Paradise Point State Park
Campground Description: Paradise Point State Park is owned and operated by the State of Washington. This 88 acre RV camping and tent camping campground offers 79 camping sites and 6180 feet of shoreline on the East Fork of the Lewis River. The park isn't named Paradise Point by chance - it really is a little slice of paradise. The only distraction at this park is Interstate 5, located just a few yards to the west of the park. When selecting a camp site, try to get one of the wooded camping sites on the east side of the campground. Open year round. Reservations are strongly recommended during the summer months.
Number of Sites: 79
Waste Water Dump Station: Yes

Fishing: At the park fishermen can try their luck on the East Fork of the Lewis River. The main Lewis River joins the East Fork approximately 1/2 mile west of the campground. Another 1/2 mile later it joins the Columbia River and a large area of small islands. A boat launch is available at the campground. Seasonally, Salmon, Steelhead and Trout can be found on the Lewis River. Inquire locally.
Astronomy Opportunities: Few due to the abundance of trees. There is a clearing on the south end of the campground that is suitable for astronomy. The exact location for computerized telescopes is 45.8635° N, 122.70396° W.

The Free Guide To Northwest Camping is a free guide to both privately owned and publicly owned (state, county and federal government) campgrounds. The editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not specifically endorse any of the campgrounds listed in this site. Not every available campground is covered in this free camping guide. Many of the privately owned and operated campgrounds do allow RV camping but not tent camping. If in doubt, call the campground first.
The authors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not accept payment from any agency or private campground owners. In this way we ensure that every description in this free guide is unbiased. Covered are campgrounds owned and operated by state and federal agencies, private RV campgrounds, RV parks, family campgrounds, and camping sites for both tent camping and all types of RV camping. While free campgrounds are listed and described, pay per night campgrounds far outnumber the free sites.
Please use the email link above to notify the editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping of any errors or omissions. New campgrounds are added weekly.
