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.
Camping in Bird’s Eye View? Noise from heavy equipment between 6 a.m. and 4 p.m. may affect campsites 161-192 this summer. A private land owner is developing the bordering land. Tacoma Power has no control over this work. Check availability of other sites now or call 833-290-8180.
