Grant Lake and Grant Lake Creek ...
Grant Lake is a small lake nestled on the west side of Dog Mountain and east of the Collins Point Landslide. The lake offers fishermen peace and quiet all-year round. There is a small parking area on the east side of the lake for 2 to 4 cars. Grant Lake is fed by Grant Lake Creek which enters the Columbia at RM 158.4 and supports winter steelhead spawning. Grant Lake is located in T3N R9E, Section 31, in Skamania County, and was named for Edward Grant who owned the property surrounding the lake.
