Features

Steeply sloping bottom ,

Description

Potlatch State Park lacks any remarkable reef structure but it has easy access and a steeply sloping bottom that extends past 100' in depth. Enter the water anywhere along the shoreline and swim toward the row of public mooring buoys that conveniently mark the drop-off at about 30' deep. Below this line the silty bottom slops steeply downward. Sand dwelling creatures such as sea pens, moon snails, sea stars and some species of nudibranchs can be found here, along with the occasional flatfish. Above this line the bottom is covered with cobblestones and houses small creatures for those with sharp eyes.

Special Restrictions:

Beware of boat traffic, there are several public mooring buoys located just off shore for Potlatch State Park. Visibility can be poor during late spring or early summer due to algae bloom on after any major rainstorm due to river runoff.

Cold showers are located near the restrooms are ideal for rinsing gear.

How to get there:

Potlatch is located in the southwest end of the Hood Canal along the western shoreline off on HWY 101, just south of Hoodsport.
