Parking: Room enough for 10 trucks with trailers.

Accessibility: Exit West off Highway 101 on the South side of Shinglehouse Slough.  This launch is primarily used for small motorboats, kayaks, driftboats, and canoes.  Fall Chinook Salmon fishing effort in the adjacent Isthmus Slough is limited due to the bridge height restrictions.

Shinglehouse Slough Boat Launch Launching Pad and Dock.  Low Waters and Low Bridge Clearence make Shinglehouse Slough Boat Launch Difficult for most Powerboats to Use.Facilities: A shallow water one lane concrete boat launch.  A floating dock is available during the Summer and Fall seasons.

Attention: The entrance to the Boat launch is on a corner of the highway with limited visibility, be aware when exiting and entering the highway with trailers as traffic seems to flow very fast around the limited visibility corner.  Highway 101 crosses Shinglehouse Slough and there is limited height to go underneath.  At very high tides it can be impossible to go under the bridge for boats more than a couple of feet tall.
