Property description

The home is located on the south side of Mount Saint Helens, a short distance from the boat ramps at Lake Merwin at Cresp Bay and Yale Reservoir at Saddle Dam. Near by is also the beautiful Lewis River and Merrill Lake. For the avid fisherman bring your boat for easy access to the boat ramps. For Fly Fisherman there's fly fishing only areas, on Merrill Lake and Lewis River. For the golfer there's the Lewis River Golf Course located on the Lewis River, also offers fine dinning. East of Cougar is The Swift Reservoir it's a massive mountain lake with boating sports. For the Mt St Helens climbers, the home is located seven miles from the registration at Cougar and climbers bivouac is twenty two miles from the home. For scenic drives and hikes there's gorgeous water falls to visit, foot bridges at Lava Canyon, and Windy Ridge on the east side of Mt St. Helens. The Ape Caves just out of Cougar are also a popular destination for children and adults. In the winter there's a snow park east of Cougar for snow mobiles and cross country skiing.
