Battle Ground Lake State Park
Campground Description: This 279 acre park is owned and operated by the State of Washington. WOW! What a great campground! There are almost as many exclusively tent camping sites as there are RV camping sites. Add to that a horse camp (tents only), over 10 miles of hiking trails, 4100 feet of freshwater shoreline and abundant wildlife viewing and you've got one of Washington State's premier RV camping and tent camping campgrounds. The smallish lake offers fishing, a boat dock, a swimming beach, and 'round the lake hiking. Also available are a concessions stand, a day use kitchen and shelter for 20 to 150 people, 85 picnic tables with a covered kitchen, a ball field, horseshoe pits and a children's play area. Nestled in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains and within 1/2 hour drive from Vancouver, this park offers peace & quiet, beautiful forests surrounding a clear lake, lots of activities and a great RV campground and tent campground. Open year round. Reservations are available for the time period of May 15 to September 15. Reservations are strongly advised.

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.
