Lakes are unique resources that provide habitat for fish and wildlife and recreation for county residents. While lakes provide enjoyment to thousands of people every year, they are also easily degraded by human activities.
Careful lake and watershed management can protect these resources and their benefits to the community. Clark County currently does not have a lake monitoring program, but does support partner agencies in their monitoring efforts.
- Battle Ground Lake State Park is managed by Washington State Parks.
- Lacamas Lake is part of the Clark County and city of Camas parks systems.
- Vancouver Lake Watershed Partnership has conducted research and developed management recommendations for partners and community stakeholders.
- Clark County Public Health monitors local designated swim beaches at Vancouver Lake, Klineline Pond and Battle Ground Lake to determine if the water quality is safe for swimming and recreation.
Clark County has provided lake monitoring in past years and various data and reports are available. To request reports, please call 564.397.4018.
