Location

This park is poorly mapped on Google Maps. 1.5 miles east of Rainier, turn east onto Lindberg Road. Stay left at the Y and access Laurel Wood Road. After 0.1 miles, turn south onto Laurel Wood Beach Road and go about 0.1 miles to the park entrance road – there is a sign for the park. Follow the gravel road down to the parking area.

Habitat and Birds

Rafts of ducks can be found in winter as there is a bit of a sheltered cove. Both scaup and Common Goldeneye are regular. Some woodland birds can be found in the parking area. This is the easiest place for goldeneye in the county and Barrow’s is possible (one report from this vantage point).
