More About Lake Tapps Waterfront

Lake Tapps is a nearly 2,500-acre reservoir in Pierce County about 20 miles east of Tacoma and just north of the City of Bonney Lake. While its shores can be accessed year round, the level of the lake is down throughout winter and early spring, preventing boat access although fishing is possible from its banks.

Parks with access to the lake

Visiting one of the parks along the shores of Lake Tapps is the best way to enjoy the numerous activities available here such as swimming, boating and fishing.

Lake Tapps North Park is set along the north banks of the lake at 1715 198th Avenue East in Bonney Lake while Allan Yorke Park is a popular community park and the biggest in Bonney Lake located at 7203 W Tapps Highway E.

Park and lake activities

Lake Tapps North Park offers spectacular views of Mount Rainier to the south on a clear day as well as an ideal place for kids and adults to swim.  This mostly undeveloped 80-acre site has nearly 10,000 feet of waterfront access.

You'll find a number of amenities here such as a boat ramp, concession stand, picnic tables, restrooms, barbecue grills and trails. The park also offers three miles of undeveloped and natural surface trails with the opportunity to hike through a mini-urban forest or along paved trails.

Lake Tapps North Park is open from April through September, 7:30 a.m. until 8 p.m., but keep in mind that the lake is not filled to capacity until mid-May. Arrive early on weekends and hot days to snag a parking space. 

Allan Yorke Park offers a fenced-off portion of the lake for swimming with free lifejackets available for use as well as a public boat launch and fishing dock. You'll also find a large grassy area that is ideal for picnics or sunbathing. The park includes three baseball diamonds, a skate park, playground, two tennis courts, a basketball court and a concession stand.

The boat launch at Allan Yorke Park requires a fee of $8.50 per launch or a boat launch pass available at the Utilities Desk at the Justice & Municipal Center located at 9002 Main Street East in Bonney Lake, currently for $30.

Lake Tapps is open year-round for fishing and supports naturally reproducing populations of largemouth and smallmouth bass, yellow perch, stocked tiger muskies and black crappie - tiger muskies under 50 inches must be released. The best shore access for fishing can be found on the northeast shore at Lake Tapps North Park or the western shore at Allan Yorke Park.

Other lakeside activities

Golfers won't want to miss enjoying a round at Tapps Island Golf Course, rated the best 9-hole course in Washington by Inside Golf magazine. They note, "The scenery is beautiful, with the lake bordering the first few holes; on a clear day you have an unobstructed view of Mount Rainier sitting just off to your left as you tee off."

The Lakeside Grill found at the course serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Here you can sip cocktails or enjoy your meal while watching fabulous sunsets on the upper outside deck.
