Salmon Creek

Known for its parks and trails, Salmon Creek provides a scenic escape from the city and serves as the gateway to North County.

Tracing three miles of the area’s namesake waterway, the Salmon Creek Greenway Trail winds around wildlife interpretive areas, native salmon runs, and restored wetland habitat frequented by herons and nesting ducks. The paved, shared-use trail is perfect for walkers, joggers, bikers, and equestrian use. Follow the trail to its terminus at Klineline Pond for rainbow and brown trout fishing.

Just northeast of Salmon Creek, Washington State University Vancouver attracts not only undergraduate and graduate students to its campus, but also visitors ready to appreciate the scenic views of Mount Hood and Mount St. Helens. The University’s Cougar Trails provide several miles of walking, jogging and biking paths through the forested areas around the campus.

Salmon Creek boasts multiple hotels and clusters of fast-casual restaurants, which make it a great home base for travelers visiting the nearby RV Inn Style Resorts Amphitheater or Clark County Event Center.
