The site is downriver (west) of the Wahkiakum County Ferry which connects Westport, Oregon and Puget Island, Washington. (A bridge connects Puget Island to Cathlamet.) The site is owned and operated by the Port of Wahkiakum No. 2 - the same port that operates Skamokawa Vista Park and County Line Park. Canoe and kayak launching is inexpensive - $2.00. Can be busy during fishing season.
Launch goes into the mainstem Columbai River relatively near the shipping channel. Take extra precaution.
