Lake Tyee - A Recreation Community

Find yourself here!


Nestled in the North Cascade Mountains, near the border between the United States

and Canada, lies a serene lake resting in the shadow of snow-capped Mt. Baker.

Lake Tyee, one of the best kept secrets of the Pacific Northwest.


A place where family and friends gather and lasting memories are made.

From the Lake:

Have you wondered?

We have contacted WA department of Ecology about the circles of weeds we have in the lake and they have confirmed they are grass-leaved pondweed. These are native plants that provide good habitat, so the recommendation from Ecology is only controlling parts where they are interfering with recreation the most, and leaving the rest.

The response also informed us that the lake seems to be in good shape overall, so they would recommend not treating the plants aggressively. That can lead to increases in algae growth, which can be worse.

September 2020

September brings us the last big weekend of summer and this year the weather is perfect. It's a strange year, not being able to have all the big events and gatherings as in years past but it does make for some quality family time and hopefully, next year we can have a huge party.

Be safe and have a fun Labor Day weekend.



Where is Lake Tyee?

Lake Tyee is located approximately 2 hours north of Seattle and approximately 1 1/2 hours south of Vancouver BC.


From Washington I-5, take the Burlington exit and go east on State Highway 20 for approximately 21 miles. Turn left onto Baker Lake Highway and travel north for approximately 7 miles. Turn right onto Burpee Hill Road (you will see a large "Lake Tyee" sign at this intersection). The Lake Tyee community is on both sides of the road after the turn. The sales office is located on the left side of the road just before you get to the main entrance.
