Come Explore Westport -A mixed-use boating access facility makeover 15 years in the making
In 2007, Clatsop County had a
vision for Westport County Park to turn into a first-class boating facility. Their vision turned into a long-term multi-phased project, spanning over a decade. Construction started last summer and was dedicated on February 1, 2022, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, and Marine Board Member Laura Jackson was in attendance.
The Westport facility is nestled in the protected Westport Slough, with direct access to the Columbia River. The renovated facility features an accessible nonmotorized boat dock with a 120-foot by 5-foot gangway to reduce the slope during low tide and improve usability for persons with mobility challenges. The gangway also connects to the short-term tie-up dock for motorized boaters. The new two-lane concrete boat ramp, aluminum boarding docks, flush restroom, large boat trailer, single car parking areas, day-use, and park host make this a safe and inviting destination for all recreational boaters.
