Public Boat Launch


Are you a boater? Lake Stevens makes it easy to use the Public Boat launch right in the heart of downtown. Located at 12200 17th PL NE, just a block south of City Hall, it is a two-lane launch, has handicapped accessible docks, and offers boat slips for the day.

Boat launching itself is free but the parking rates are fantastic at $5/day or $75/year. Download the application here for an annual parking permit. So, if you are ready to take advantage of some great boating, tasty fish, and sun beams, there’s no better place. If you already have a valid Washington State Department of Fish & Wildlife Vehicle Access Pass or Discover pass – you’re already good to go! No other pass is needed. .

We do ask that those who purchase day permits display them on the dash of the vehicle interior and that all who utilize the launch exercise patience, as space is limited. It is a public boat launch and we want everyone to have the opportunity to enjoy the best of Lake Stevens.
