Located in Washington, Bivin Lake real estate is a beautiful, but lesser known, market in the state for lake homes and lake lots.
Located near the Cowlitz River and the Mt. Rainier National Park, Bivin Lake is a secluded area in Lewis County, Washington. This landscape offers many new building opportunities that are far enough from the city to enjoy the peaceful surroundings but close enough if you want to make a trip to the state capital, Olympia.
This location is ideal for hiking, mountain climbing, and taking in scenic views. Mt. Rainier and Mt. Adams are close to Bivin Lake.
Mt. Rainier National Park is considered an “icon” in the Washington landscape. As an active volcano with various wildlife observing opportunities, this location is open all year long. The best times to visit look to be in July and August. Since Mt. Rainer stands at approximately 14,000 feet above sea level, this makes it the largest mountain where you can even spot the area from Downtown Seattle.
Mt. Adams is the second largest mountain, standing at around 12,000 feet, and can be climbed any time of the year. Depending on your desired climbing or hiking routes, some routes are best taken at different months of the year. If you plan on taking the south-side route, the best months would be mid-may to mid-June.
Mt. St. Helens National Volcanic Monument offers many recreational outdoor activities like hiking, camping, fishing, snow sport, and even park ranger-led programs to get educational information about the area. Mt. St. Helens National Volcanic Monument can be located in the southwest region of Washington where individuals come to check out the forests, mountains, river valleys, waterfalls, wilderness life, and volcanoes.
