In the 1930s, the area was the location of a gas station and a small country store. After World War II, the area was developed as a trailer-park fishing resort with a boat launch. Though the property changed hands a few times, it remained a fishing resort until the state purchased it in two parcels in 1990. Since then, the boat launch has been rebuilt. The area continues to be upgraded and developed to include more features.
Float removed Nov. 5 and reinstalled March 6.
The park has one boat ramp and 100 feet of handling dock. There is a large parking lot for cars with boat trailers.(509) 632-5583. Annual permits also may be purchased at State Parks Headquarters in Olympia, at region offices, online, and at parks when staff is available.
