The battle never occurred, but the name stuck after residents of nearby Fort Vancouver were sure a skirmish would break out between several indians who escaped from the compound and the army soldiers. This little lake was nevertheless born during an upheaval: a collapsed volcanic cone, Battle ground Lake is in essence a miniature Crater Lake. The spring-fed caldera is a popular place for local anglers, but hikers will find much to their liking in the forested trails that ring the lake.
