While work is being done to upgrade the picnic shelter at Fallen Leaf Lake Park, temporary public access is available via a short trail that begins at Fallen Leaf Softball Field. A trail head and parking lot are located at Northeast 23rd Avenue and Birch Street.
The picnic shelter will open for reservations in 2012.

Camas Mayor Scott Higgins recently asked City Administrator Lloyd Halverson at what point he targeted Fallen Leaf Lake Park as a place he wanted to see owned by and open to the public.
“From day one.”
That’s quite a statement, considering that Halverson started his job in Camas 22 years ago.
Last Tuesday, the successful completion of that long-term goal was celebrated at the official dedication ceremony for Fallen Leaf Lake Park.
Approximately 80 people attended the event, that included a backdrop of blue skies and sunshine that glistened off the lake surface. As master of ceremonies, Higgins highlighted the length of time the project has been in the works, and the dedication of the many involved in the endeavor.
