Miller Peninsula – Jones Trust Acquisition

Category Overview

State Parks grants help preserve and develop our state’s best outdoor recreation areas by funding new campgrounds and amenities to increase the capacity of our parks, creating new parks, improving park resources, and protecting historical areas. These grants help our state continue to develop our world-class parks system to share our cultural heritage and natural treasures with all of its visitors.

Project Highlights

State Parks will use this grant to buy 21 acres next to Miller Peninsula State Park, near Sequim. The land is next to the northwest corner of the park and contains a forest, a quarter-mile of shoreline, and a small stream in a ravine. This would be one of the few places along the north side of park where it might be possible to build access to the beach because much of the existing state park has very high banks. Miller Peninsula State Park encompasses about 2,800 acres of the north Olympic Peninsula and includes an extensive trail system popular with hikers, mountain bikers, equestrians, and wildlife viewers. State Parks will contribute $1,000 in donations of cash.
