We’ve come a long way! Earlier this year the Port of Kalama embarked on a comprehensive marina renovation project that would enhance and update the popular riverfront facility for patrons and guests. With a world-class facility in mind—designed for fishing, boating and water recreation—the Port has made great strides this year to create the renovations and upgrades to the Port of Kalama Marina that have ultimately enhanced the user experience.
The Port today announces that the following enhancements are complete:
- The boat launch has been replaced with two lanes open for launch traffic.
- All docks have been replaced at the boat launch and fuel dock.
- A state-of-the-art fuel system and new digital self-service pump have been installed—accepting Visa, Mastercard, and Voyager credit cards and open 24 hours a day.
- Waler boards and power pedestals have been replaced in boathouse C.
- Gangways have been replaced at the fuel dock and boat ramp
Marina project upgrades still underway include:
- Waler board replacements in Boathouses A and B AND C.
- Boathouse utilities like the new metal pedestals and electricity—which are underway in all houses.
While there is still amphitheater construction in Marine Park and Louis Rasmussen Park, walking paths have been repaved with new lighting and are open for visitors.
Port of Kalama’s celebrated parks are all open for business and offer incredible amenities and popular venues for family enjoyment:
- Beaches and waterfront for boating and fishing
- Sporting facilities for soccer, baseball, tennis, football
- Equestrian arena
- Picnic facilities and covered areas
- Walking paths
- Expo area for events

“We understand what marina interruptions mean to our valued patrons and visitors and we appreciate your cooperation and understanding as we complete the biggest marina renovation project since it was originally built,” says Mark Wilson, executive director, Port of Kalama. “While there will be short-term construction, we believe the end product will restore the marina so it can be enjoyed for decades to come.”
