General Information

Description - Anderson Lake State Park covers 410 acres with over 8,000 feet of freshwater shoreline on Anderson Lake. A boat launch is provided, but only electric motors are allowed on the lake. The lake is only open to the public seasonally.

Park highlights are fishing for rainbow trout and a 4.4 mile hiking trail that circles the lake. Other amenities include one picnic site, vault toilets and a parking area.

Recreation - Recreation activities in the park include power boating, trout fishing, hiking and picnicking.

Climate - Jefferson County's climate is heavily influenced by both the Olympic Mountains and the bodies of water that surround the Olympic Peninsula. It is generally a marine climate, mild and temperate, with the Pacific Ocean moderating temperatures throughout the year. Winters are cool with moderate rainfall and little snow within the coastal areas, while summers are warm and relatively dry.

Port Townsend and the northern part of the county sit in the "rainshadow" of the Olympic Mountains and, thus, average only 16 inches of rain per year.

Location - Anderson Lake State Park is located eight miles south of Port Townsend, off State Route 113, in Jefferson County.
