The East Fork of the Lewis River flows from Gifford Pinchot National Forest through Clark County to the North Fork of the Lewis River. The two converge in Woodland, WA then flow into the mighty Columbia River. Due to habitat restrictions and shoreline protections, existing homes are extremely desirable, so the market for waterfront properties tends to push prices higher. In particular, the demand for East Fork waterfront properties remains constant throughout the year.
