View of the north pond, Wapato Greenway (bobcat)


Virginia Lake is the centerpiece of the Wapato Access Greenway State Park on Sauvie Island. A trail circles the lake and a viewing platform offers a vista from its south end. The lake fills and recedes seasonally; in summer it is more of a wetland, blooming with low water plants such as beggars ticks and sneezeweed, and the North Pond, Virginia Lake's deepest section, separates from the rest of the lake.
