Ike Kinswa State Park

Cowlitz Indians resided here and used an area above the bridge as a burial ground. Remains were removed before the flooding of the Mayfield Dam. Remaining pioneer graves have been fenced to preserve their historical value.

The park was named for a Cowlitz Indian who represented his people. The park is on the north side of Mayfield Lake, with forested campsites available year-round. Enjoy many activities such as picnicking, boating, water skiing, fishing and driftwood collecting. There is also a half mile interpretive trail. The nearest town is Mossyrock at the eastern end of the lake.

The Washington State Parks system includes more than 125 developed parks and includes about a quarter million acres. To make a reservation at more then 60 Washington state parks, contact Washington State Parks from May 15 to Sept. 15.
