Lake Washington - Review

This huge freshwater ribbon lake was sculpted into existence by ancient glaciers. Surrounded by townships on all sides, fed by Cedar River, the lake is 88 square kilometres in size. The lake's muddy bottom meant that it was impossible to build a regular suspension bridge to cross it; thus, it holds the distinction of having the world first, second and fifth longest floating bridges. There are a lot of things to do at that lake:

From Warren G. Magnuson Park and Golden Gardens Park, you can swim in the waters

Various cruise and tour companies will take you out into the lake on a boat

Fishing is rich at the lake, with catches such as trouts, bass and salmon. Fishing access points from various different towns are at Kenmore, Magnuson Park, Gene Coulon Park, Rainier Beach Park, Waverly Park, Marina Park, Old Ship Museum Park, Gene Coulon Memorial Park, and Luther Burbank Park.

Water Sports activities are highly popular, led by experienced guides. These include jetskis and flyboarding.

Lake Washington, Seattle Reviews

  • Beautiful place to go on a seattle summer day. The water will be a little cool, but the environment is amazing. Go out in the water on your boat with your friends and have a good time.

  • I LOVE lake Washington! My aunt has lived there forever and she has a few boats. The lake is where we spend all of our time when we’re up there. In the summer the water is nice, and people are respectful and don’t make big waves right by you. I think everybody should go there

  • This is a huge, no, I mean gigantic hole over 20 miles long and over 100 feet deep in some places just north of Down Town Seattle. It’s so big, King County decided to build 2 bridges just to get across it. Oh, and forget crossing it on foot, it’s filled with water.

  • Several easily accessible parking stalls along the perimeter if you want to enjoy the view. Of course you have to get on the lake to gawk at the homes (reminiscent of Hollywood drive-by tours). Many places, especially along Kirkland, to hop onto a lake cruise.

  • Very big. I thought it was the biggest in Washington, but it isn't. I still like it anyway.
