Formed by the Tacoma Power's Mossyrock Dam, the tallest dam in Washington State, 11,830-acre Riffe Lake winds for over 20 miles through forested hillsides as a recreational mecca. Formerly called Mossyrock Lake, then Davisson Lake, this reservoir stretches for over 13 miles along US Highway 12. at an elevation of 774 ft.
With Mossyrock Park on the west end of the lake and Taidnapam Park on the east end, the lake is well-equipped with recreational facilities for fun on the water. On the highway at the west end of Riffe Lake, the North Shore Fishing Access offers a close-up view of the dam and great fishing possibilities.
Nearby, the Riffe Lake Overlook provides beautiful views of the lake and surrounding foothills. Watch the lakeshore during dawn and dusk for deer and elk. Fishing is available year round.
After a day of boating fun, it's easy to remember why it's called the "Great Outdoors." Call 1-888-502-8690 to check availability of boat launches.
