Seaquest State Park

Seaquest is a 475-acre, year-round camping park set among lush pines in the shadow of the storied Mount. St. Helen's volcano. Seaquest Park boasts forested campgrounds, great hiking trails and stunning mountain panoramas. Next door to the campground is Silver Lake. The park is connected to the popular Mount St. Helen's Interpretive Center, another worthwhile destination, and Silver Lake by a pedestrian tunnel which leads you to a boardwalk trail over the wetland where ducks and other wildlife thrive.

Interpretive opportunities

Seaquest is connected to the Mount St. Helens Interpretive Center by a short pedestrian tunnel. The Interpretive Center features a fun, interactive educational experience focusing on the May 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens and subsequent regrowth. It also offers visitors a sweeping view of Mount St. Helen's National Volcanic Monument, 47 miles east of the park in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest.


Seaquest features more than 12 miles of hiking trails. A boardwalk trail beside the Interpretive Center connects visitors with wetland shoreline for an unobstructed view the volcano and surrounding woods.


Silver Lake at Seaquest is a shallow wetland lake that is home to many species of birds and wildlife.

The park has five yurts located in a wooded area of the park. Each yurt features sleeping accommodations for up to five visitors, a small end table, a 20 amp electrical outlet and heater. Outside is a picnic table and fire pit with grate. All yurts are heated, but visitors should take along blankets and warm clothing as evenings can be cool. Tents are not allowed on the yurt site, but awnings are okay. For more information, visit the cabins/yurts page.
