Guillemot Cove

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

County acquisition of approximately 1,200 frontage feet on Hood Canal plus 2,500 lineal feet of creek frontage. Includes nearly 190 acres of high quality wetlands and shore areas. The site has high habitat values for fish production and bird life, and offers excellent small boat and birdwatching recreational opportunities.
