Point No Point Park Parking

The main parking lot at Point No Point Park remains closed due to the significant damage caused by the past winter storms. However, we have good news to share.

The Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) parking lot located on Point No Point Road is open for the summer season. In addition to the normal use the parking lot provides and until Point No Point Park is open again to vehicular access, the WDFW parking lot may also serve as a location from which visitors may park and walk to Point No Point Park. A Discover Pass will be required to park in the WDFW parking lot. Passes can be purchased online and in person. For more information, please visit https://wdfw.wa.gov/licenses/parking.

We remind visitors about the following:

The main parking lot at point no point park is closed. However, the park is open to pedestrian traffic. Please walk to the park by following the road indicated on the map.

Beach and tidelands on both sides of the WDFW access area are privately owned respect the privacy and property of adjoining property owners.

No stopping or loitering on private tidelands for any reason.

Exercise caution as vehicles may be entering/leaving the area.


Point No Point Park: Project Update - April 2, 2024

We are excited to provide you with an update on the Point No Point Park beach and shoreline repair project, which aims to repair the damages caused during the 2022/2023 Winter season. We want to share these updates with you as they provide valuable information about the project and the steps we are taking to repair and fully open the park to visitors.

Phase 1: Repairs - COMPLETED
We are happy to announce that Phase 1 of the repair project that included importing sand and rock materials to the north beach to bring the elevations back to pre-storm levels is complete.  

Phase 2: Improvements
Phase 2 of the repair work represents a larger project that is intended to improve the beach and shoreline beyond current and pre-storm conditions.  Phase 2 will add additional material to increase the beach elevation further, plant native vegetation to provide increased soil stability, and rebuild the rock revetment wall in front of the lighthouse.  This work is not yet permitted but targeted to take place in 2024 once permits have been approved.  For the Phase 2 work, we are continuing to collaborate closely with the regulatory agencies responsible for permitting work within the shoreline environment; this includes Kitsap County's Department of Community Development, the State of Washington's Department of Ecology, and the Department of Fish and Wildlife, the US Coast Guard and US Army Corps of Engineers, and the local Tribes. Initial design concepts for Phase 2 of the project have been reviewed and supported by these agencies, and permitting from these agencies is in process.

Limited Park Access
Until Phase 2 is complete, the super-sack sandbag wall will remain in place to provide enhanced protection from storms and high tidal fluctuations on the north beach.  However, because this reduces the ingress/egress road to the Point No Point parking lot to a width that cannot accommodate two vehicles passing each other and creates emergency vehicle access issues, the entrance road and parking lot will remain closed to the public until the super-sack sandbag wall has been removed.  

The WDFW parking lot is currently open with additional parking in the small overflow lot outside of the WDFW parking lot (880ft..0.15mi. via paved road to park entrance) and at the trailhead on Thors Road (2,500ft./0.50mi. via dirt trail to beach stairs).

When visiting the park, we remind visitors about the following:

• Beach and tidelands on both sides of the WDFW access area are privately owned

• Respect the privacy and property of adjoining property owners

• No stopping or loitering on private tidelands for any reason

• Exercise caution as vehicles may be entering/leaving the area

We encourage you to contact Kitsap County Parks Staff if you have any questions or would like further information about the project and the ongoing work. We appreciate your interest and support in the repair work at Point No Point Park.
