Hazel Dell & Salmon Creek

Did you know that Hazel Dell and Salmon Creek are unincorporated towns? It’s a part of Clark County and governed as such but it is not part of Vancouver. For the most part, it won’t make a huge impact to your daily life. You’ll call the sheriff instead of the police department, trash pick up is a little different, rules are a little looser, etc. Sometimes it gets a bad rep because there’s a high ratio of businesses to homes but I think this area is going to be where the next food hub is!

Neighborhood Gems

Creekside BBQ is a new addition to BBQ restaurants in the Vancouver area. Chef Steve brings a strong resume and culinary experience and his food is top-notch. Everything is made in-house, including 4 different kinds of BBQ sauce.

Salmon Creek Regional Park is a huge park in the middle of the bustling city. Here you’ll find a 3 mile long paved trail where you can observe wildlife and birdwatch. There’s also a beachy pond with a splash pad and lifeguard on duty during the summer.

Pros & Cons

Hazel Dell and Salmon Creek are great places to live. It’s a more affordable neighborhood, there are a lot of restaurants and businesses, easy access to the freeway, and it’s near a lot of parks and nature. But because of that, there’s more noise and traffic. Plus some people don’t like to live close to commercial/industrial areas
