Stream Culvert Removal at Sequim Bay State Park to begin Sept 12 2016

State Parks will be removing a stream culvert at Sequim Bay State Park beginning Sept 12, 2016. This work will improve salmon habitat by returning the stream to its more natural condition and clear the way for better fish passage. The project is very large in scope and will include removal of the road that now serves the group camp and the moorage area. During the project, driving access to these locations will be closed. Once the project is completed, the driving access will be through the south/west side of the park, going past Ramblewood ELC.

The park will remain open during construction. Campers, group camp guests and other visitors, please be aware that there may be construction noise and extra traffic in the park on weekdays between approximately 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. and temporary traffic detours within the park during the construction period.
The Olympic Discovery trail will be detoured around the project while a new bridge is constructed for the trail. The trail will remain open, via detour, throughout the project.

The Hiker Biker sites will be closed during the project. Hiker/Bikers will be directed to sites in the main campground.

The Group Camp will be closed during the project.

Parking at Ramblewood will be impacted, staff are currently working on alternatives.

The moorage dock will remain open for use, but the vehicle parking will not be available and visitors arriving by motor vehicle will have to park near the main entrance and walk (approximately 1/3 mile) to the moorage area.

The lower picnic shelter will be closed, at least at times. The shelter has been removed from the reservations system during the project to reduce impacts to users.

The closed facilities are expected to reopen May, 2017.
The public can contact park staff at (360) 683-4235 for questions.
