Wenberg County Park is located on Lake Goodwin near Stanwood Washington. The overall park is 45 acres, offering camping, picnicking, swimming and boat launching.
We are in the middle of a construction project to refurbish the boat launch, improve vehicular and pedestrian circulation and revise the waterfront area of the park. The renovations are to promote access for all and to improve safety. The boating portion of the project includes renovating the boat launch, providing boarding floats, transient moorage floats, and supporting boating facilities.
The water access portion of the project includes adding accessible parking spaces and installing new accessible pathways from the parking area to the swimming beach. This project is needed because there are currently no ADA compliant routes to get park users to the waterfront and no designated accessible parking in this area of the park. The planned pathways will continue onto an accessible swimming/fishing dock allowing those with disabilities and able-bodied people clear, easy access to the lake.
The project has been funded by two grants from the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office (RCO).
These improvements will significantly increase access for all park users to a multitude of waterfront recreation opportunities.
Construction began in February of 2018 with the upland area of the park. Construction is progressing nicely; however, the boat launch will be closed until the completion of the waterfront renovation. Current projections point to early November for boat launch and waterfront opening.
The campground is open and unaffected by the construction. Campers have access to the north picnic area down by the lake. The park is closed to day-use visitors until construction is completed. Here is a link to the groundbreaking event 360 degree view of groundbreaking ceremony
THE BOAT LAUNCH WILL BE OPEN FOR BOAT RETRIEVALS ONLY ON SATURDAY OCTOBER 6TH! This is the FINAL time that the boat launch will be open to allow residents around the lake to get their boats off the lake for the winter. The launch will be open from 9 am to 4 pm. Additionally, the dock at the boat launch has been removed, so you may get a little wet while retrieving your boat. We anticipate the boat launch being completed and open to the public in early November.
