Hawk's Point/Tokeland Area

Clams, mussels, and oysters OPEN May 26 through December 31. 

 

Harvest profile

The harvest profile of this beach has changed dramatically in recent years due to the increased abundance of burrowing shrimp. There are currently no oysters available for harvest and the clam resources are limited.

Directions

Driving directions: From Raymond follow SR 105 north towards Tokeland to Freshwater creek (at milepost 13.3).

Parking

Access: The Hawk's Point/Tokeland site may be accessed by boat or by land along State Route 105. There are three gravel turnouts on the north side of Highway 105 between milepost 13 and 15 that can be used for parking.

Location: Second class tidelands lying in front of, adjacent to, or abutting upon Section 5 and Government lots 4, 5, and 6, Section 4, Township 14 north, Range 10 west, W.M.; lying northerly of privately owned tideland tracts. The eastern boundary of this public tideland area starts along State Route 105 near Freshwater Creek and continues to the west approximately 2 miles.

Boundaries: Some uplands in this area have prestatehood patents, which means that the upland propert line (s) end at mean high water or the meander line, whichever is further seaward. Some erosion has occurred along this stretch of shoreline. It is likely that some privately owned uplands now have tideland characteristics, and what may look like public tidelands is actually privately owned land. Also , there are privately owned detached tidelands located between approximately 500-1,500 feet seaward from the meander line.
