Belfair State Park

Besides opening up the mouth of Big Mission Creek, the work last year included restoring the shoreline westward towards Little Mission Creek. It will be fun to see how it evolves.

The low campground is protected by a berm - the outer edge of which consists of a gravel beach and a series of cabled logs. The new cove opens westward, into the prevailing winds and waves, so will inevitably accumulate floating debris - large wood, dead eelgrass, and styrofoam. After big storms, this is where folks who live on the Canal will come to find their swimming rafts, floats, and stray dinghies.
