About the Day Use Park

The Day Use Park is situated at the east end of Lake Scanewa where the Cispus and Cowlitz Rivers meet. The park is also just a few short miles from the Leonard “Bud” Allen Park/Cowlitz Falls Campground and provides a perfect backdrop for picture-taking.

Amenities offered at the Day Use Park are picnic tables, boat ramp with dock, a swimming area and a restroom facility. No overnight camping is allowed.

The gate is almost always open, year-round from dawn to dusk and use of the park is free. Please call our Recreation Hotline number of (360) 345-1484 for Up-to-the-Day Information, especially during possible High Water Events, for possible gate closures. Please refer to the Washington State Fish & Wildlife regulations for fishing season information. Watch for our annual Kid’s Fishing Derby that coincides with the “Free Fishing Weekend” in Washington.
