Wenberg State Park which is located on the eastern shore of Lake Goodwin is a 45-acre park in the community of Lake Goodwin, Washington. The park has gone through lots of managerial changes since it was opened. At first, the park began as a 20-acre Snohomish County Park until it was acquired by the state of Washington in 1947.
From then on until 2009, the Wenberg State Park remained under the management of the state of Washington when acute budget constraints forced the state to relinquish ownership back to Snohomish County. Today, the park is now managed by Snohomish County Parks and Recreation and goes by the name, Wenberg County Park.
One thing that has not changed in all of this time is the amount of opportunity that the Wenberg State Park has to offer. Visitors to the park can enjoy several recreational activities including picnicking, camping, boating, swimming, sunbathing, and fishing. In fact, the park is a renowned spot for cutthroat and rainbow trout fishing.
There are several amenities in the Wenberg State Park to facilitate all of these activities including 65 standard campsites, three primitive campsites, picnic shelter, swimming area, concession, boat launch, and 10 utility campsites (with water and electrical hookups).
From the City of Everett, which is the county seat of Snohomish County, the Wenberg State Park is 18 miles northwest on Lake Goodwin. More specifically, access to the park is relatively easy if you follow Interstate-5 and drive west along Highway 531 (also called Lakewood Road) and then at exit 206.
At that point, travel about two miles and turn right at the stop sign and follow East Lake Goodwin Road and go nearly a mile before getting to the main entrance to your right.
