(Douglas County, Ore) Douglas County Commissioners Tom Kress, Chris Boice, and Tim Freeman along with Douglas County’s Salmon Harbor Marina are excited to unveil and introduce automated fee machines at Salmon Harbor Marina in Winchester Bay. The new automated fee machines will enhance the payment processes for launches, transient moorage, and dry camping. There are three new automated fee machines, one at the east launch ramp, one at the west launch ramp and one at the D-section of the dry-camping area on the middle spit of Salmon Harbor on Ork Rock Road.
Salmon Harbor Marina discontinued the use of traditional pay boxes and began accepting payments through these automated fee machines, which are designed to accept credit card transactions exclusively. Visitors who prefer to pay with cash will still have the option to do so at the Salmon Harbor Marina Office, located at 100 Ork Rock Road in Winchester Bay. The Salmon Harbor Marina Office is open Monday through Friday - 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. For after-hours payments, envelopes will be made available at the office, and payment can be deposited in the pay slot.
The automated fee machines are the latest of several ongoing improvement projects initiated by the Douglas County Board of Commissioners and Salmon Harbor Marina in order to enhance the Winchester Bay community.
