Damon Point in Grays Harbor County, Washington is a former Washington State Park.[1][2] The park consisted of 61 acres (25 ha) at the southeastern tip of Ocean Shores Peninsula on a 1-mile (1.6 km) by 0.5-mile (0.80 km) piece of land jutting out into Grays Harbor.[1] Today, the Washington Department of Natural Resources controls the land, and has been restoring it[3] as bird habitat, especially for the threatened streaked horned lark, but also for other birds, including the snowy plover.[4]
