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.

May at the lake

What a perfect time to enjoy Lake Tyee

The weather has been nicer than expected,

trees and bushes are turning green again,

the air smells of fresh cut grass and campfires,

and the Robins are making their music.

A continued reminder...

Camping season is here and with it, comes more children out playing, more people out walking and more traffic in the park.

Speed limits, stop signs and speed bumps are all designed to help keep everyone safe. Please obey the speed limits and stop at the stop signs.

The speed limit in the park is 10 MPH with the exception of single lanes being only 5 MPH.

Going slower also helps keep the dust down as things dry out, which everyone appreciates.



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.
