Battle Ground Lake State Park is a camping park with 280 acres of beautiful, forested land in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. The lake itself is of volcanic origin and is considered to be a smaller version of Crater Lake in Oregon.

Beautiful little hike around the lake!

It's a short trail, but very beautiful! There is an upper trail and a lower trail. The upper trail is wider but you really can't see the lake. Lower trail does have some tree roots but very close to the lake and has many spots where you can get into the lake or fish. Great trail!!

It was a very nice trail. There is a upper trail that is for horses and is wider and not so many roots. The lower trail you do have to watch for roots. It was pretty and we got a nice workout walking 3 times around the lake. Lots of people fishing. Nice man made sandy beach for swimming. You do have to have a discovery pass.

Nice trail around the lake, different paths you can take. Watch out for horse apples ;)

Nice easy walk. You can take some of the different trails to make it longer and get off the beaten path, but in my experience they didn't offer much in the way of views. The prettiest views were found on the lower lake trail. Great for other activities besides hiking- camping, swimming, fishing... lots to do here!!

Easy walk; the bottom portion is pretty accessible for small loads but not strollers. Saw tons of people fishing. Lake is very calm, but small, so good to float in but not for exploration.

Very pretty here

Easy, pretty, lake views. Not stroller friendly at all points.

I walked around the horse trail two times and it was somewhat muddy.

I love this walk! No hiking involved and a beautiful walk around the park.

The lake is beautiful and so peaceful especially mid-week! Trails are very well maintained and even saw a horseback rider out today.
