This was once a US Navy airfield called "Sandpoint", built on the edge of Lake Washington, an ideal place to test seaplanes. In the fifties, the base was turned into a park named for Washington Senator Warren Magnuson. Its a large park that's usually pretty...More

Watched the solar eclipse from here. The water was relatively warm and we had a beautiful view of Mt. Ranier. Will definitely go back again.

Be sure to put on your walking shoes if you visit the park because the trails are extensive. We actually docked a boat and walked around for quite awhile. Lots of places to meander and very kid and dog friendly. Great for nature lovers.

Headed here on a clear day - sat on a hill and had a picnic dinner with great views of Mt. Ranier and the Cascade Range in the distance. Also has great paths along the water and through the park.

A SeaDoo is a watercraft. I'm not concerned with drivingvit around the park. I want to know if you can launch it from the boat launch then leave it on the beach and picnic nearby.
