Lake Sylvia State Park is a quiet, 233-acre camping park with 15,000 feet of freshwater shoreline. The park is an old logging camp in a wooded area halfway between Olympia and the Pacific shore. Aside from the interesting displays of old logging gear and curiosities, the lake is good for fishing, and the rustic charm of the park makes for excellent day outings and group camping trips.

Good hiking trail for small kids and dogs. Lots of cool little bridges including a covered one. Roughly 2.3 miles round trip from Lake Sylvia State Park campground. We have done the trail in the winter too and it looks totally different with frost, snow and ice.

Love running these trails, it's been so nice lately!

Nice hike, great overnight stay in the campground. I have MS and CHF so I had to take the uphill portions of the trail slow, but I did it! Would be slick in rainy weather. Campgrounds were quiet and well kept. Clean facilities include showers. Canoe was tied up right at the site.

Well marked. The lake loop is 1.5 miles & the forest Creek loop is 2.2 miles. Need Discover Pass to park. West side of both trail loops looked ADA comp., East side not at all.
