Tokeland Things to Do
The Tokeland Marina has two boat ramps with fairly long floating piers for preparation of arrival and departure. It is reasonably well sheltered by breakwaters, but Willapa Bay is a very windy place. A store on the north side of the boat ramp offers snacks and supplies of all sorts.
Fishing boats tie up here, and you can usually find someone selling crabs.

Located at the very far south end of Tokeland, it is possible to find what is one of the few publicly accessible facilities in this small community.
Here, you will find a small wooden platform from which the local people throw their lobster traps into the water, or fish. It is also a reasonably popular place to look for various birds, particularly during the spring and fall migration season.
The public fishing pier in Tokeland is operated by the Port of Willapa Harbor (see web site below). To get to the portion of the web site that describes this facility, select "Facilities" from the menu on the left side of the page, then select "Tokeland Marina" from the list of sites that opens in the main section of the web page.
If you visit, please be careful how you park so as to not block anyone else in. There isn't too much parking here, and the people with the crab pots need to be able to move their pots into the back of their pickup trucks (invariably, they drive pickup trucks so as to easily load and unload the various paraphernalia associated with crab fishing from a pier.Related to:
0 Hotels in Tokeland
I can't tell you too much about the Tokeland Hotel's Restaurant, other than it is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, and open 8 am to 2 pm on Wednesdays, 8 am to 8 pm on Thursdays through Saturdays, and 8 am to 6 pm on Sundays.
Other than the Indian casino up on the main highway, which really isn't in Tokeland itself, there are no other restaurants nearby.
The store at the end of the Tokeland Boat Ramp serves as a local convenience store, and sells just about anything you would expect to find in a small fishing and boat based community. Bait of course is high on the list, but also various foods and supplements that are in high demand for those going out or coming back in. Signs out front change with the seasons, and vary from "Bait, Snacks, Coffee" to "Crab Bait" and "Ice" and "Herring" to any other thing that might be needed or desired here.Related to:
