Lewis and Clark State Park is a public recreation area located six miles (9.7 km) northeast of Winlock in Lewis County, Washington. The state park occupies one of the last major stands of old-growth forest in the state. The park's 616 acres (249 ha) include camping areas and trails for hiking and horseback riding. Evidence of the efforts of the Civilian Conservation Corps to improve the park in the 1930s can be found in the park's rustic shelters and restroom facilities.[2]
