Public Boat Launches


Are you a boater? Lake Stevens makes it easy to use either of its public boat launches.  The North Cove boat launch is located right in the heart of downtown at 12200 17th PL NE, just a block south of City Hall.  The Davies Beach boat launch is located at the intersection of N Davies Road and Chapel Hill Road. Both are two-lane launches, with ADA-accessible docks, and North Cove offers an ADA-accessible boat loading area. So, if you are ready to take advantage of some great boating, tasty fish, and sunbeams, there’s no better place.

Annual Passes are available for purchase at City Hall and at the kiosk for $75/year. The City of Lake Stevens annual pass is accepted at both launches.
