Named after the largest lake in Snohomish County (1,000 acres and 8 miles of shoreline), Lake Stevens is east of Everett. The lake has both public and private shore lands, with sandy public beaches and public boat launches. Canoes, jet skis, airplanes, sailboats, surfboards, rowboats, windsurfers and activities like horseback riding, sunbathing, and fishing can all be enjoyed at Lake Stevens. The Centennial trail stretches from Snohomish to Lake Stevens and will soon extend up to Arlington. You won't want to miss Aquafest, the biggest event of the year, held the last weekend of July.
