Create an itinerary including Alder Lake Park
Alder Lake is a 7mi long reservoir on the Nisqually River in Eatonville, Washington in the U.S. state of Washington, which was created by the construction of Alder Dam in September 1944. At the very eastern end of the lake is the town of Elbe, Washington. The name of the lake recalls the former small town of Alder, which was flooded in 1945 by the impounded water of the lake and disappeared.

  • Beautiful lake. The water is turquoise and calm. Great place to kayak or fish. Can camp here or just have a picnic. When it is warm out, there is also a swimming area and beach.
  • Alder Lake has been our favorite boating/swimming/kayaking for 20 years! The City of Tacoma maintains it beautifully. My only complaint was the poor redesign of the parking striping in the lower lot which is awkward and counterclockwise for trucks with boat trailers.
