At A Glance

Pope and Talbot founded the mill and town of Port Gamble (www.portgamble.com) in 1853 and assembled thousands of acres of forestland in Kitsap County. Over the decades many of these lands have been developed and sold off.

In 2007 the landowner Pope Resources announced its plans to exit from Kitsap County and offered to work with the community to find ways to partner in the preservation of 7,000 acres and 2 miles of undeveloped Port Gamble Bay shoreline.

Thousands of people enjoy these working forest lands for their recreation, wildlife, and solitude. Wildlife is abundant and varies from shellfish to black bear and cougar.

Discover and enjoy this legacy property. And then help us to preserve it for future generations.

After all – it’s YOUR backyard.
