American Lake Park
This popular park is located on the north shore of American Lake. American Lake Park is well groomed with plenty of tall trees, grass and a nice sandy beach. One can access the beach either by stairs or down a grassy slope. This well-kept park offers seven outdoor picnic tables and a covered picnic area that offers three to four additional tables. The covered area can be reserved by contacting the Lakewood Parks and Recreation Department or can be used for free on a first-come, first-served basis. The park also offers clean seasonal restrooms and an outdoor shower.
The upper grassy area has tall evergreens that offer shade in the summertime while not interfering with the beach area. There is a well-kept playground close to the parking area and seasonal bathrooms. This park has three full-size boat docks, which leaves plenty of room for boats on those busy days. American Lake Park also offers two parking areas, one for trucks with boat trailers and the other for cars.

Staying at Diana's was an amazing experience! she made sure I was accommodated in every way.. the room was cozy, clean and comfortable. She supplied an abundance of amenities, a variety of coffee and breakfast items larger than my own! She shared an array of knowledge and business ideas, All I can say is thanks Diana for the wonderful experience

Diana was a wonderful host. Not only did she provide an abundance of breakfast items, she went out of her way to accommodate me by picking me up from the shuttle and dropping me off. Her home is comfortable, clean, and she goes above and beyond to ensure her hosts are well taken care of. I give her my highest recommendation as a host. Anyone who rents out her rooms will not be disappointed ;)
Very welcoming host. Provided comfortable room and plenty of amenities. Recommend for any long stays for transitioning veterans.
She was very accommodating. The room and home was just like the listing. I had a great time and enjoyed my stay.
Diana is an excellent host. Her home is nicely decorated and the room and bed are super comfortable. The location is a close drive to the Lakewood Town Center shops and easily accessible to I-5 for Tacoma and Olympia. Approximately 40 minutes to Seattle. Diana is the first host to make her home a true bed and breakfast. The items provided were as well stocked as any restaurant. Diana provided excellent conversation and her military experience and travels around the world made for interesting perspectives. I definitely recommend staying with Diana if looking to stay in the beautiful Northwest.
You know, as a guy who visit America at first time, we don't know what American people like before. Until we met Diana, we know that people in America were so nice and so kind to others. We arrived at her cosy house at about 5pm, she had repared cups of ice tea for us, and that really made us calm and relieved. We talked about our lives and things we interested at her backyard, the sunshine was just good, and the atmosphere was also neat, the whole process were really a good memory. Her cats are soooo cute and friendly too. We had a good first night at America on the cosy bed. The next day, Diana prepared bread and coffee for us. We are so sorry that we didn't have longer time to stay with her. We appreciate that we could have a chance to stay at her house and especially, with her. Hope one day we could met again, sincerely.
