Yelm Waterfront Real Estate

Yelm is located in southeast Thurston County, roughly 20 miles from the capital city of Olympia. As it’s situated near a number of major roadways and just a short drive from Interstate 5, it makes it easy to reach the greater Puget Sound Region as well as activities in and around Mount Rainier National Park. In the town itself, Yelm waterfront real estate buyers includes riverfront property, with the Nisqually River running through, as well as lakefront options with a number of lakes in the area, including Lawrence Lake, less than 8 miles south of town. Living on the Nisqually River means easy access to activities like rafting, canoeing, kayaking, inner-tubing and fishing, with the river representing the southernmost population of pink salmon in Puget Sound. On the lake, you can expect to enjoy active pursuits like water skiing, swimming and fishing for stocked channel catfish, largemouth bass, bluegill sunfish, yellow perch and more.
