Nestled in a quiet valley just 1 mile east of Discovery Bay is Anderson Lake, a 70-acre quiet body of water teeming with fish and wildlife. Once the centerpiece to farmland owned by William F. Anderson, the lake along with surrounding fields and forest are now part of a 410-acre state park. Aside from Anderson’s former home and a few outbuildings, the property is in a natural state. Where cattle once grazed, you now have free reign to discover the simple beauty of this tranquil little spot on the Quimper Peninsula.

I was planning on doing this hike, but checked with the WA State Parks & Rec folks. Right now the Lake is CLOSED for any water activities due to an algae bloom (http://www.jeffersoncountypublichealth.org/index.php?lake-water-quality) which will KILL your dog and harm people if the water's ingested. It's a beautiful area, though. Please check the parks & rec site before visiting.

Although there was snow on the ground and thick ice on the lake, it was a nice, easy, family hike. Flat, not very strenuous. Lots of Bald Eagles perched all around the lake. Very quiet.
