These rural communities were home to agriculture, iron smelting and the lumber industry. While the latter two have mostly disap- peared, new farms and a Chimacum cidery have sprung up to provide “farm to table” culinary treats. Parks and campgrounds provide recreation opportunities year round. Catch fish in freshwater lakes or saltwater bays. Gather clams and oysters when in season from many public beaches.
