Cascadia Marine Trail

Category Overview

Washington is famous for its gorgeous and abundant waterways, from the Salish Sea to the Nisqually River, but many communities lack open public beaches and waterfronts where everyone can enjoy picnicking, swimming, paddling, boating, and angling. Water Access projects fund public shoreline access, boat launches, and fishing docks to create more opportunities for water recreation.

Project Highlights

This project includes acquisition of a 25-acre parcel at Possession Point. This site, along with others at Burrows Island, Penrose Point, Kinney Point, and Skagit Island will be developed as designated campsites along the Cascadia Marine Trail. Development includes a landing area for kayaks, a group campsite with a table, a small information board, signs and where not otherwise provided, a toilet.
