History of the Area
In the 1930s, the area was the location of a gas station and a small country store. After World War II, the area was developed as a trailer-park fishing resort with a boat launch. Though the property changed hands a few times, it remained a fishing resort until the state purchased it in two parcels in 1990. Since then, the boat launch has been rebuilt. The area continues to be upgraded and developed to include more features.
A Discover Pass is required for vehicle access to Washington state parks for day use. For more information about the Discover Pass and exemptions, please visit the Discover Pass web page.
