Skykomish River 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

This project involves the purchase of a private campground known as the Mega Site, totaling 22 acres. The site offers waterfront access to and views of the Skykomish River. It will provide a day use site for picnickers and sightseers, alleviate traffic hazards from shoulder parking, and provide interpretive information.
