For more than 65 years, PacifiCorp has provided public recreation opportunities along the Lewis River. Today, we operate 14 recreation facilities along the river, below Merwin Dam and along the shores of Yale, Merwin and Swift reservoirs. Combined, these recreation areas provide the public with 304 campsites in four campgrounds, 233 picnic sites and nine boat launch locations. Our Lewis River recreation facilities begin at Island Access, approximately two miles east of Woodland, Washington, on State Highway 503, and continue 45 miles upstream to Eagle Cliff Park at the east end of Swift Reservoir.
Notice- Beginning Monday Sept. 19 through Saturday Sept. 24, 2016, please be advised that heavy equipment will be mobilized and staged at the Swift Forest Camp day use area to facilitate a construction project taking place on the Swift Reservoir. The boat launch will be intermittently blocked by the heavy equipment during this time, but will not have signficant impacts to recreation. Please exercise caution and stay away from areas the equipment is mobilizing or working, and do not cross the blockade set up for public safety purposes.
Notice - Updated September 1, 2016: Recreational fires, west of the Cascade Mountains crest, in approved fire pits within designated state, county, municipal or other campground are allowed. See the Commissioner's Order (PDF). Visit the DNR website for further detail.
Notice – Updated Sept. 19, 2016: Designated swimming areas at Swift Forest Campground, Beaver Bay, and Yale Parks are all closed due to low water. The boat launch at Beaver Bay Park is also closed due to low water. Kayaks can be easily portaged for launch at Beaver Bay Park. All other boat launches within open parks and river access sites are available for use.
All persons using the waters of the Reservoirs do so at their own risk.
Notice - Cedar Creek River Access will experience intermittent closures to the public this summer and fall due to the NE Etna Road bridge replacement project. As of June 8, 2016 NE Etna Road is scheduled to be closed to the public at the bridge through this winter.
