Hope Island 96

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 in Mason County develops limited day use and overnight recreational facilities on Hope Island, previously purchased with WWRP assistance. Project elements include: primitive camping, trails, moorage, toilets, interpretive and day use facilities, and signing.
