Miller Boat Launch DetailMiller Boat Launch is a very popular four acre site on the east side of Tomales Bay, a few miles north of Marshall. The launch was renovated in 2007 and provides a two-lane ramp and docks for motorized and non-motorized boat launching. Overnight parking is allowed for boaters, which makes Miller an excellent access point for visitors seeking overnight camping or boating adventures in Tomales Bay and surrounding Point Reyes seashore. Anglers have a choice of fish at Miller including striped bass, perch, rock fish, halibut, salmon, and crab. The dock and parking are accessible. Personal watercraft are prohibited for reasons of habitat protection and noise. Dogs are allowed on leash and must not enter wetland areas because of sensitive wildlife species. No camping allowed.

Water Testing at Miller Boat Launch: Marin County Environmental Health Services (EHS) monitors ocean, bay, and freshwater sites in Marin County. Miller Boat Launch  is one of 28 sites that are sampled once a week from April 1 through October 31 to determine if a beach meets California water quality standards for recreational water contact. The EHS works cooperatively with Marin County Parks to collect water samples and post advisory signage as needed at the sampling sites. Visit the EHS Water Quality Testing Program webpage for more information. Results from weekly sampling are available on the webpage (in the "Beach Water Quality Information" document), on the Heal the Bay website, and by calling the EHS beach hotline at (415) 473-2335.


From the town of Point Reyes Station, take Hwy 1 north approximately 13 miles. The boat launch is on the left, adjacent to Nick’s Coves and Cottages (23240 California 1, Marshall, CA 94940).
