Mossyrock Park

Get our latest COVID-19 updates at MyTPU.org/Parks.

Tacoma Power’s Mossyrock Park is a family-friendly getaway with access to Riffe Lake (formed by Mossyrock Dam) in Lewis County, Washington.

We built a new boat launch in 2018 due to changes to Riffe Lake levels. We also built a new swim area with an access trail and ADA-accessible parking. It is located near the boat launch.

Get updates on lake levels, boat launches and swim areas, or call 1-888-502-8690 for recorded info.

Get current burn ban information. See the Department of Natural Resources for burn ban details by county.

Please note that the Mossyrock Park Main Campground (sites 1-60) will be closed for maintenance beginning Sept. 16, 2021, for up to a month.
