Why Lakewood?

Conveniently located halfway between Seattle and Olympia, Lakewood is the host community to Joint Base Lewis-McChord and Camp Murray. We are home to several beautiful lakes and wonderful historic treasures such as Fort Steilacoom Park, Lakewold Gardens and Thornewood Castle. Lakewood is an ideal place to shop or lodge while visiting local destinations like Mount Rainier or Chambers Bay.
