Columbia River Small Craft Access

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

The Columbia River Small Craft Access project includes development of an 8′ X 80′ PVC loading float and gangway. The project supports the existing waterfront trail system currently managed by the Chelan County P.U.D. #1 and enhances the overall character of the specific site.
