Lofall Area:

On the west side of Kitsap County, Salisbury County Park off State Route 104 has beach access and a boat ramp with panoramic views of the Hood Canal Bridge and Olympic Mountains. If an overnight stay by the water is what you are looking for you’ll want to check out the nearby Kitsap Memorial State Park off State Route 3 which has camping and 1,797 feet of shoreline on beautiful Hood Canal.

Lofall is known for its part in history as one of the Black Ball Ferry & State Ferry landings. William & Martha Lofall leased the property to Black Ball who in turn built the dock. Service started in 1950 from Lofall to Southpoint. The lease allowed the Lofalls to use the south side of the traffic line.

Bill Lofall barged in a building from Scandia which became the Sea Breeze Inn. Here, passengers could buy beverages and hot food. After the ferry left, the Sea Breeze Inn became a rental house and is now the dock keeper’s house for the private Lofall Community Corp.

There was also the Lofall Bait House which sold herring to local fishermen. JRO Realty got its start at the Lofall Dock on an adjacent lot that was owned by Glenn Settle. After the ferry left, JRO moved to the Poulsbo Junction.

In 1951 the Black Ball turned over its operations to the Washington State Dept of Transportation. When the Hood Canal Bridge was built in 1961 Ferry service was retired.for this location and the property and dock were turned back over to William & Martha Lofall who In 1972 put the dock up for sale.

The State proposed building a public boat launch at the dock site but the community came together and formed the Lofall Community Corporation. They purchased the property and created the private facility that we know today. Original shares were sold for $1000 each.

In 1979, the second round of Ferry Service began when the Hood Canal Bridge sank in a winter storm. The State re-commissioned the Lofall Dock to again offer ferry service between Lofall and Southpoint while the Bridge was rebuilt. And in 2009, the State again re-commissioned this Lofall Dock for Water Shuttle service, while part of the Hood Canal Bridge was replaced.

It’s important to note that while both the Tax Assessed Valuations and the Auto Valuation Models can be instructive about home values. These numbers may not be keeping pace in real time with what is actually occurring in the market at any given time. The true market value is dependent primarily upon the recent most comparable sales, and the best way to determine the current value is to contact your Real Estate Broker and ask for a current CMA. If you dont’ have a Broker you prefer or one are currently working with, my partner Jana Salmans or myself, would be very happy to assist you, just give us a call or e-mail us, our contact information can be found at the top main menu.
