Anacortes Marina and Museums

069
  The marina has a dry camping area which is nothing more than marked spaces along the edge of a gravel parking lot. Chose a spot and check-in at the harbor office. Campers may use the marina restrooms and showers. A free dump station is located a few blocks north on 4th Street. There’s also very slow free WiFi. The $20.00 per night fee is kind of high but the location is great. A mile long paved walkway follows the shoreline and two small museums are within walking distance.  Marina

The Maritime Heritage Center has a restored sternwheel snagboat that is open for tours and a small museum gallery focusing on salmon fishing. Visiting the gallery is free. A small fee is charged to visit the snagboat. The museum is accessible. The first level of the snagboat is accessible.  Center

   The sidewalks and curb cuts are in good condition but if you want to drive to the museums there is parking along the streets where RVs will fit.

  3. That stern wheeler looks like a barge tug, similar to the one in a museum over in Le Claire, Iowa.

    1. The original boat was built in 1929. It went through several rebuildings. One included transferring bits and pieces to a shallow steel hull. Sounds like a barge to me!
