Quilcene Public Shellfish Gathering Grounds
Public Clam and Oyster Beach at Quilcene Bay
(Dept of Fish and Wildlife Tideland)
When you are in Quilcene, follow the Linger Longer Road along the beautiful shore to the Public Tidelands area. At low tide, in season, you can harvest your own oysters to your heart’s content. A vault toilet is located at the northernmost of the two small parking lots. There are no trash receptacles at this site. Don’t be selfish with our shellfish! Please pack out all your garbage.
From the southernmost of the two parking lots, walk down the embankment and follow the marked path out to the tidelands; don’t stray outside the marked path or you’ll end up in soft mud. Private tideland boundaries adjacent to the WDFW tidelands are marked with white fiberglass posts.
