La Center

Located east of Interstate 5 in the northern region of Clark County, La Center offers small community living with convenient commuting to Vancouver and Olympia, Washington and Portland, Oregon, less than a 30 minute drive away.

In the 1870’s, La Center served as the hub of commerce for Lewis River trade and benefited from the booming lumber industry.  With the arrival of railroads and highways, La Center lost its main source of income and lapsed into a small village serving the surrounding farming district.  La Center was officially incorporated on August 27, 1909.

Today, residents and visitors enjoy an abundance of wildlife and outdoor activities in the rolling foothills of the Cascade Mountains, the East Fork of the Lewis River bordering on the south and city parks. The La Center Wetlands Stewardship Park is home to Canada Geese and Tundra Swan who stop over on their migration along the Pacific Flyway. Sternwheeler Park is a brand-new outdoor amphitheater designed as a great venue for bands, concerts and special events.

Restaurants, offering a variety of foods, are located in the four card rooms/casinos which allow gambling on card games and poker, but not slots, near the General Commercial District consisting of businesses and stores including food/fuel convenience markets.

La Center is about a 30 minute drive to Portland International Airport.
