Cornet Bay Marina closes for reconstruction

Boaters will need to seek alternative options when visiting the area

OLYMPIA – Sept. 9, 2021 – The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission will begin contracted reconstruction work to the Cornet Bay Marina pier at Deception Pass State Park on Sept. 9. The floating docks will remain open until October but will not have access to the shore. The closure will provide safe access for the contracting firm working on the demolition and reconstruction of the dock. State Parks expects the pier and moorage docks to reopen in Spring 2022. 

Fifty parking stalls in the lot will be blocked off for construction work staging materials. Bathrooms will remain open daily from 8 a.m. to closing time at dusk. The boat ramp will remain open throughout the duration of the project. Limited beach access will be available west of the boat ramps. Visitors are asked to follow all signage and stay out of closed areas.
