WDFW Water 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

Acquisition of uplands with adjacent streambank easements on five rivers in the Puget Sound area. River access sites include the Puyallup, Skagit, Sauk, Green, and Stillaguamish Rivers. Future development could include boating/fishing access and parking.
