Emerald (Toad) Lake Neighborhood

The Emerald Lake community is located on Squalicum Mountain, just east of Bellingham. Emerald Lake, also known as Toad Lake, is a small, 29-acre lake nestled high up on Squalicum Mountain. The lake is surrounded by trees and has limited public access giving it a rural feel just minutes away from I-5 and downtown Bellingham. 

Toad LakeEmerald Lake is great for rowing, paddling, swimming and fishing (no motor boats allowed). The lake is stocked with rainbow trout and kokanee fry. Waterfront home enjoy easy access to the water and there are two "community only" lake access points for Emerald Lake Property Owners Association members. There is no public access to the lake from Emerald Lake Way.

On the western hillside of Squalicum Mountain many homes enjoy full or partial views of the City, Bellingham Bay and the Islands to the west. 

Barkley Village and Sunset Square are both a short drive away and have grocery stores, several retail shops and restaurants. Downtown Bellingham is about 5 miles away.

Emerald Lake has one public access area at the southwest end that can be reached fron Toad Lake Road. There is a gravel boat ramp, floating dock and limited maneuvering and parking space. The lake is open to fishing from April 28 to Oct 31.

In general, public school students living in the Emerald Lake area attend Northern Heights Elementary, Shuksan Middle School and Squalicum High School. Northern Heights Elementary and Squalicum High School are both located nearby. Shuksan Middle School is located in the north end of Bellingham.
