  Castle Rock: Where Past, Present and Future Come Together
Castle Rock is a wonderful place to live, work and play. It’s a community where the people are as resilient and vibrant as the natural features that surround their home; a place where life-long residents and visitors alike feel they are part of the same tight-knit family.

Castle Rock, the Gateway to Mount St. Helens, is situated between the Cowlitz River and Interstate 5, located 134 miles south of Seattle and 63 miles north of Portland, Oregon. (Link to map of Castle Rock.) It is the northern most city in Cowlitz County, with a population of 2,120.

Spirit Lake Memorial Highway (State Route 504) connects the city to the Mount St. Helens National Monument and Spirit Lake recreation areas – two of the most outstanding tourist attractions in Washington State. The City of Castle Rock received the Association of Washington Cities 2004 Municipal Achievement Gold Medal Award in recognition of the Riverfront Trail Project.

Castle Rock’s historic downtown features a wide variety of shops, antique stores, restaurants, and accommodations.
