Harts Lake real estate is considered a limited supply market for lake homes and lake lots in Washington.
Harts Lake is positioned perfectly so that it is an hour away from both Olympia and Seattle.
Travelers also have the option to fly into Seattle-Tacoma International Airport or Olympia Regional Airport, with Olympia being a shorter drive by about 15 minutes. Urgent care can be found at St. Peter’s Hospital less than 25 miles away.
With a Safeway less than a 15-minute drive from the lake, groceries and other essentials are never far off. Locals recommend Jim Bob’s Chuck Wagon and Varsity Pizza Mckenna for dining out.
At about 110 acres and its deepest point at over 50 feet, Harts Lake is perfect for both seasoned and casual anglers.
This lake is generally stocked with thousands of rainbow trout each season by the Washington Fishing and Wildlife Department. There’s no shortage of bass and panfish but keep an eye out for jumbo trout that sometimes appear in the Fall. Yellow perch, black crappie, bluegill, and pumpkinseed sunfish, and bullhead catfish have also been caught here.
Be sure to drive north to the Washington State Fair where you can enjoy unforgettable fair food and family-friendly fun. Roller coasters are offered for thrillseekers, but if that's not your speed, many shows are also available.
The Northwest Trek Wildlife Park should be visited for those who need to get their wildlife viewing fix. Deer, goats, moose, elk, bison, grizzlies, wolves, and bald eagles can be found here. It's incredibly family-friendly and if you go on the tram tour, expect to spend about three hours here.
Whether you are looking to buy a family home, a full-time retirement residence, or waterfront property, Harts Lake is an excellent choice.
