Historical Background
Two stories claim credit for the park's name. In one story, local tribes used the area for encampment along the east of the Lewis River and called it "Paradise Point." In another, a motorboat club from Portland, Oregon used to travel to Kaner Rock on the Lewis River for river trips and camping. They called the quiet, peaceful area "Paradise Point."

Facilities
70 campsites, 9 walk­in sites, comfort station, trailer dump station, 3 pit toilets, 29 picnic sites, primitive boat launch, residence, shop/service bldgs., contact station, 2 hiking trails which total 2 1/2 miles. Water is supplied by 3 wells.

Of Special Interest
Named for its original peacefulness, the park has lost some of its reputation for quiet since the freeway went in. Still, the area posesses great natural beauty, and the noise of I-5 can be avoided by using the woodland campsites.
