Lake Desire


Lake Desire, also called Echo Lake, is an unimproved watershed 5 miles southeast of Renton, Washington in the United States. It is a small part of the Maple Heights-Lake Desire, Washington area, 45 minutes east of downtown Seattle. According to King County, it has productive water quality, a maximum depth of 21 feet and a surface area of approximately 80 acres. A public boat launch and fishing dock is located to the north of the lake but does require a vehicle use permit from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. On the southeast border of the lake, a 382-acre forested park and wetland area has been allocated by the Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program.
