Lake Sammamish State Park
This 531-acre, day-use park with over 6,000 feet of waterfront at the head of Lake Sammamish provides swimming beaches, motorized and non-motorized boat launches, playgrounds, picnic areas, trails, and more.
Lake Sammamish provides important habitat for recovering salmon, as well as recreation opportunities for local residents. The 11-mile East Lake Sammamish Trail connects Lake Sammamish State Park with Marymoor Park to the North, via the old railbed of the Seattle, Lake Shore & Eastern Railroad Company. The lake is home to non-anadromous (landlocked) kokanee salmon, as well as coho and Chinook species. In addition to salmon recovery, community groups have been working for years to restore the park’s ecosystems, which were disrupted by farming, logging and development during the last century. Friends of Lake Sammamish State Park (founded in 2013) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting, enhancing and promoting the park for the benefit of the entire community.
Since 2005, the Greenway Trust and Washington State Parks have collaborated on efforts to restore salmon and wildlife habitat at the park.
