Ike Kinswa State Park

873 Highway 122
Silver Lake, WA 98585

360-983-3402

Ike Kinswa State Park is a great place to make summer memories. This classic state park sits on Mayfield Lake amidst a rolling patchwork of farmland 20 miles east of Interstate 5 and off U.S. Highway 12. Ike Kinswa provides idyllic days of boating, swimming and water sports for the whole family.

Fish for tiger muskie, largemouth bass, kokanee and rainbow trout; launch the family boat for water sports, or bring kayaks and paddleboards for a mellow float. Kids can splash in the swim area until the air turns cool, the daylight fades and the smell of barbecue draws them back to camp.

Campers can choose between quiet, forested tent and RV sites or lakeside cabins and snuggle in for the night after a busy day on the water.
