      Pauls Lake is a private residential lake nestled between the Pacific Ocean and Willapa Bay on the western edge of Washington state, allowing residents and visitors a chance to explore several marine areas.

      The Pauls Lake area is 12 miles north of the small cape town of Ilwaco, the outlet of the Columbia River separating Washington and Oregon.

      Ilwaco offers full K-12 public education and its own Ocean Beach hospital with a helipad. The charming town is also host to a selection of local dining and recreational outlets.

      There’s Always More to See

      The Pauls Lake area is a dream come true for fishers of all stripes. Dogfish, perch, cabezon, flatfish, chinook, and coho salmon can all be hooked in the Willapa bay. In certain seasons, Pacific oysters, Manila clams, and cockles can be harvested from the bay with a license.

      During the summer, chinook and coho salmon are plentiful on the Pacific side of the cape. Albacore tuna can be found further out, though it is advised to travel only with a local experienced guide as bar and weather conditions can change quickly without warning.

      Leadbetter State Park is a natural area located less than nine miles north of the Pauls Lake area. Leadbetter features a half-mile of ADA walking trails, seven miles of hiking trails.

      More than 100 species of birds can be seen in Leadbetter. Migratory birds such as shovelers, brants, pintails, buffleheads, and sooty shearwaters are viewable from fall through spring. The park also features a launch for kayaks and canoes.

      Pacific Pines state park is located 2.5 miles from the Pauls Lake area. This 10-acre park is a common destination for kite-flyers, fishers, crabbers, clam harvesters, and birdwatchers.

      Willapa National Wildlife Refuge is just under 12 miles from the Pauls Lake area. The Refuge offers views of over 200 species of birds, several endangered species, the highest diversity of amphibian life in the northwest. Hunting for elk, deer, and waterfowl is also a common draw to the refuge.

      Fort Canby state park is a 1,882-acre camping park on the Long Beach Peninsula that offers 27 miles of ocean beach, two lighthouses (including the oldest functioning one on the west coast), and extensive walking trails. The site of the end of the Lewis & Clark Expedition features a boat launch and numerous opportunities to view the eclectic mix of native fauna and wildlife.
