Lewisville Regional Park
Lewisville Regional Park is Clark County’s oldest park and often considered its flagship park. The Works Progress Administration developed the 159-acre park during the Great Depression. The park was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986 and on the Clark County Heritage Register in 1987.
The park encompasses forests and meadows along the East Fork Lewis River, with a 2.8-mile trail meandering through the park. A small boat launch is located in the park’s northeast end where the park’s access road ends.
Outdoor activities abound including fishing, picnicking and horseshoes. There is one main baseball field and several play fields, playgrounds and restrooms throughout the park.

Clark County Parks charges parking fees year-round at Lewisville Regional Park. Daily parking fees are:
- $2 for motorcycles
- $3 for cars
- $6 for cars with trailers
- $8 for buses or motor homes
These are parking fees, not entrance fees. There is no charge for people who walk or bicycle into Lewisville Regional Park.
During the busy season, parking fees are collected from a fee booth and a parking meter. When the fee booths are not staffed, park users need to use the parking meter.
Both fee booths and self-pay stations accept cash, coin, debit cards, Visa and Mastercard. They do not accept checks, Discover or American Express cards.
Frequent park users can save money by purchasing annual parking passes, which are valid at the four regional parks charging parking fees: Frenchman’s Bar Regional Park, Lewisville Regional Park, Salmon Creek Regional Park/Klineline Pond and Vancouver Lake Regional Park.
Under Clark County Code, parking a vehicle without paying the required daily fee or displaying a valid parking pass could result in a $40 fine.
Lewisville has 13 reservable shelters that can seat between 20 and 200 people. The cost is $50 to $150 a day, depending on the shelter’s size.
All shelters have 6- to 8-foot long tables, water spigots, electrical outlets and fire pits. Most shelters also have horseshoe pits and charcoal barbecue grills nearby.
Other portions of the park may be available for weddings and other events on a case-by-case basis with an approved special use permit. Air-inflated “bounce houses” are allowed with approved special use permits, but dunk tanks are not.
Swimming is allowed at Lewisville Regional Park, but there are no lifeguards on duty. The East Fork Lewis River can have swift currents, and water depths can vary. Park users swim at their own risk. Parents should be vigilant watching children near the water.
