Washington State Parks is beginning work on a long-range plan for Miller Peninsula State Park Property. Miller Peninsula is a 2,800-acre undeveloped park in the north Olympic Peninsula, just east of Sequim and north of Highway 101 in Clallam County. The property includes a trail system for hikers, mountain bikers and equestrians through a beautiful second-growth forest. It also includes 3 miles of saltwater shoreline on the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Discovery Bay.
The planning project is expected to result in several products:
- Land classifications for the park
- A long-term park boundary
- A park master plan
- A predesign report providing detail on the first phase of development
- An official park name
The project will also consider changes to the nearby Sequim Bay State Park so that the two parks will provide complimentary experiences.
This is the first of several public workshops that will guide the planning project. This workshop will focus on learning people’s hopes and concerns for the park.
