Discover Battle Ground WA

November 14, 2023
Published by

The beauty of the Pacific Northwest creates a stunning backdrop for Battle Ground WA homes. Add the lore of a historical battle and you get the unique environment that surrounds the city.

Located in Clark County in southwest Washington, Battle Ground is about 11 miles north of Vancouver and 2.5 hours south of Seattle. The Pacific Coast is about 2.5 hours to the west.

And yes, Battle Ground was named after a battle that never took place. In 1855 an encounter between the native Klickitat people and a local post of the US Army was expected to turn violent but never did. The two groups met near the site that is now downtown Battle Ground. Settlers in the area referred to the place as “Strong’s Battle Ground,” and later as just “Battle Ground.”

Today two local schools are named for the leaders in the battle that never took place: Captain Strong Elementary School and Chief Umtuch Middle School.

Thankfully the area is now known more for its natural beauty than its history. Numerous parks and nature preserves are within a few miles of the Cedar Heights community in Battle Ground. Battle Ground Lake State Park is a great getaway for camping, water sports, hiking and biking. It also has facilities for equestrian camping and riding. Other parks and recreational sites in the area include Salmon Creek Greenway Trail, Salmon-Morgan Creek Natural Area and Groth Nature Preserve Walk. Nature enthusiasts might also enjoy visiting Wildlife Botanical Gardens. This unique site demonstrates how homeowners can landscape their property to attract wildlife.

Cedar Heights is a new home community just outside Battle Ground WA. Available homes are 1,814-2,687 square feet and have 2-4 bedrooms and 2-3.5 baths. Lot sizes range from 4,775-7,000 square feet. Homes in Cedar Heights start in the upper $500s.
