Shelton Travel Guide

Shelton is situated in the scenic landscape of Mason County, on the western most point of the Puget Sound. With natural scenery all around and a lively community, Shelton has much to offer the visitor.

Things to Do in Shelton

Hikes are plentiful both in and around Shelton. You can hike through forests, lakes and marshland, or down to the beaches and end the trail swimming and sunbathing.

The forested island park of Jarrell Cove has 43 acres of camping and areas to explore. Lake Isabella State Park is another lovely outdoor area for hiking and Lake Limerick is ideal for boating, swimming, fishing and jet skis. You can also rent kayaks, a lovely way to get out on the lake and enjoy a beautiful day.

Take a visit to the Mason County Historical Museum to see displays about the town's early pioneer and logging history. You can also wander through downtown and see the historic timber baron neighborhood. In June the town community celebrates their logging heritage with the annual Forest Festival and Parade.
