Recreation in Zangle Cove

Zangle Cove has a long history of recreational use.  According the the Washington State Department of Natural Resources, Zangle Cove tidelands are not an area that was sold under the Bush Callow Acts for cultivation of oysters in 1895.  This is a strong indicator that the focus of those tideland sales was not for shellfish cultivation but for recreational use and guaranteed acces to the water at low tide.
