Description

 
Sunbathe or picnic at either one of two sandy beaches located at the Twin Lakes. Boating, paddling, and other water activities are also popular, although fishing is a popular use of this park. Fish year-round in the natural spring-fed lakes.

The northern lake is designated for juvenile fishing, while the southern is open with a valid fishing license.

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife normally stocks the south lake with rainbow trout Mid-March, late April, early May and Late May.

In addition, two local fishing clubs cooperatively stock the north pond late May. Blue gill and channel catfish can also be caught.
