Camp Currie Phase 2

Category Overview

Local Parks grants help protect these symbols of vibrant communities, providing places for families to gather and play and promoting a healthy and active lifestyle in an era when people spend increasing amounts of their time inside. The WWRP is the largest source of local parks funding in Washington, helping communities fund the acquisition, development, and renovation of vital recreation areas and green spaces.

Project Highlights

This project will complete acquisition of Camp Currie Regional Park located on Lacamas Lake and Lacamas Creek in southeast Clark County. The project site borders the Camas City Limits and is located 1 mile east of Vancouver, whose urban area population is over 230,000 people. The project site covers 174 acres and includes almost 1 mile of shoreline. The property will provide regional opportunities for fishing, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, picnicking, open play, and other day-use, family-oriented activities.
