Lucia Falls

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 24.3-acre forested waterfront acquisition lies on the east fork of the Lewis River and borders Lucia Falls, one of the region’s most scenic water features. It is a major holding area for salmon and steelhead.
