Lake Sammamish In Washington

Lake Sammamish, Washington

Boating, camping and fishing.

With primary access through Lake Sammamish State Park, Lake Sammamish is a great destination for boating and fishing. There are a few boat ramps at private resorts, but public launching of a pleasure or fishing boat is available at the Lake Sammamish State Park boat launch ramp. The 4,900-acre, located lake in the west-central part of the state, 5 miles east of Bellevue, has about 20 miles of shoreline. The elevation is only 30 ft above sea level and water temperatures support both cold-water and warm-water species of fish. Trout, two kinds of bass, four kinds of salmon, perch, sunfish, steelhead and burbot all reside here in healthy numbers. Bass and sunfish anglers have hundreds of boat docks to fish as most of the lake is lined with docks. Some shoreline fishing is available at the park for those wishing to fish from the bank. Canoes and kayaks can be portaged from the park as well. There is no marina at the lake, but there are a couple options for camping.
