Located off Runge Avenue, the Dakota Creek Kayak Launch features public parking directly across the street from the access trail. The launch is located at the end of a short trail down to the Dakota Creek estuary where kayaks can be launched directly into the creek during high tide, or on a mud and sand beach.

This site is best used during higher tides due to mud flats just off shore. However, the launch offers excellent access to the estuary and southern Drayton Harbor. Anglers will enjoy this site due to the easy access to Dakota Creek which provides opportunities for salmon fishing.

A very short trail leads to a viewpoint overlooking the mouth of the estuary, which offers an outstanding view and opportunities to spot wildlife.
