Variety is something to be known at this park. Stunning beaches aren’t the only thing you’ll find at this newly-renovated hot spot. We are highlighting 8 of our favorite activities in at the Lake Sammamish State Park.

Biking & Hiking: 1.5 miles of biking/hiking trails will keep you active and busy. Stunning views, combine with natural wonder.

Boating / Water Skiing: Take your boat for a jaunt on the water. Fish, “tube”, or just indulge on a sunny, summer day! Nine boat ramps will get you in and out in no time! Didn’t bring your boat? That’s alright! Don’t forget about the kayak and SUP rentals during the summer season.

Freshwater Fishing: Beauty and wonder is what this lake is all about, and with fish in the lake (and a rod in your hand) you can have some of that for dinner!

Swimming: What’s a summer without a swim? Fresh water swimming, along the beach, will help you cool off on a the hottest of days. Remember, everyone loves the water, so get there early to stake out the best spot!

Wildlife Viewing & Bird Watching: The Pacific Northwest is one of the best places to see nature come to life, and this lakeside park is brimming with creatures for you to catch a glimpse of. Remember, don’t get to close. Wild animals are just that: wild.

Organized Sports: The park is fitted with two baseball/softball field, and a bunch of open fields for soccer, so your summer family game is still on! There are also volleyball nets along the beach, but if they’re taken, people have been known to bring and set up their own!

Horseshoe Pits & Lawn Games: Still competitive, and fun for the whole family, these games can be done anywhere: grass or sand! There’s even a new state-of-the-art playground for the little ones!

Camping: Though there isn’t any individual camping, the park has the Hans Jensen youth groupd camping area. You can reserve a space, by checking out their online information here!

These eight activities, have something for the whole family.
