Public Access Areas

The Port of Woodland has two properties along the Columbia River that allow public access for recreational use. Signs located at each property of Martin Bar and Austin Point indicate vehicle access areas, pedestrian access areas and areas with no public access.

During holiday periods of Memorial Day, Fourth of July  and Veterans Day as well as New Years at Austin Point will be further limited to provide safety for those accessing the area- vehicle access is limited and barricades and gates will be erected to limit vehicles accessing the area.

For those holding a current Port Pass from June 7, 2017-June 6, 2019– you will be receiving a reimbursement check for the Port Pass as required by WA State RCW, the Port is required to reimburse each of these passes. In some cases, these reimbursements are a few if not a single cent. We understand that this may be frustrating to Port Pass holders, but was required. Those reimbursements should be out beginning of July and sent to the address per your Port Pass. Those that are returned, will be held at the Port office for pick up.
