Cape Disappointment – Seaview Dunes

Category Overview

State Parks grants help preserve and develop our state’s best outdoor recreation areas by funding new campgrounds and amenities to increase the capacity of our parks, creating new parks, improving park resources, and protecting historical areas. These grants help our state continue to develop our world-class parks system to share our cultural heritage and natural treasures with all of its visitors.

Project Highlights

The Seaview Dunes area lies between Fort Canby State Park and a large unnamed block of State Parks ownership just north of the park. State Parks seeks to acquire private property in the intervening area as it becomes available to prevent development from affecting the viewshed, one of the last undeveloped portions of the Long Beach peninsula. Several parcels are expected to become available during the 03-05 biennium. Parks may seek easements to preserve the viewshed if fee simple acquisition is not possible.
