The South End

Fish the Cowlitz River at Toledo. Take a swim at South Lewis County Park. Explore the eggs-celent history that defined Winlock.

The south part of Lewis County is a quiet part of our region that enjoys a laid-back feel, yet is wholly inviting to tourists and visitors. Rich forests are painted with a backdrop of majestic mountains; on clear days you can see both Mount Rainier and Mount St. Helens from the Cowlitz Prairie.

Community spirit is alive and well in Toledo, with several projects to revitalize the town having borne fruit in just five short years. Vader boasts one of the county's finest cafes and is a great stopover for cyclists and those taking a country drive. Winlock pays tribute to its poultry and egg industry — and on that note, can you find all the chicken sculptures in town?
