Shellfish have had a significant influence shaping Washington’s cultural and culinary identity. They continue to be an immensely important recreational, commercial and tribal resource, and their future depends on all of us doing our part to keep Puget Sound clean and healthy. Come learn more about Washington’s strong unique shellfish heritage. 

Potlatch State Park is a 57-acre camping park with 5,700 feet of saltwater shoreline on Hood Canal. The park’s beautiful grounds are home to a variety of activities, from interpretive programs for kids to boating and shellfish harvesting.
