Description

"Port Williams official name is Marlyn Nelson County Park at Port Williams. This 1-acre gem was deeded to the Clallam County Parks in 1976. The state owns tidelands to the north that link with 1,000 feet of County tidelands ending at the privately-owned Graysmarsh Farm property.

This Park has a saltwater boat launch (eighteen feet or shorter), four picnic tables (one accessible), public beach access, vault toilet (accessible), and a parking area. Drive north out of Sequim on Sequim-Dungeness Avenue. Turn right on Port Williams Road (at the roundabout) and this road will take you into the Park.

This Park is small in size, but big in possibilities. Bring your kayak or small boat for a trip around Sequim Bay. Walk the beach or simply park at the water's edge to contemplate life as the ships pass by.
