My main concern here is about how the Garibaldi Fleet (fishermen) use the Barview Jetty parking lot to check, what we call, “the jaws” when heading into the Pacific Ocean for Dungeness crab season, as well as many other fisheries. The F/Vs captains check the bar multiple times a day to make sure it is safe for them and their crew to cross the bar and not put any lives at risk, as the ocean can change drastically in minutes. Sometimes it’s a life and death decision. These men/women should not be charged to save a life of a fellow fishermen and keep their boats out of harms way. It is not feasible to turn a boat around in the bar if it is too rough, so they drive to the jetty parking lot to verify that it is safe.... 
Their families also like to sit down there and watch them cross the bar into the ocean to know they made it safely, and keep their minds at ease, while they wait for a safe return.
The ocean is not forgiving and tomorrow is never promised. Sometimes, it’s the last goodbye. 

As well as the fishermen, some people use this location as their “therapist” A literal mental health office without the costs. Their “happy place”. I, myself, have personally sat down there on a bad day, talked to God & the “gone too soon”. That place never ceases to improve a mood or to back someone off a cliff. It’s an amazing place and charging for this I believe will risk lives. On multiple levels. 

Personally, I grew up fishing off the rocks, playing in the tide pools, and at the sand hill. We camped there as a family when I was a kid. So many memories. If there was a charge for that back then, than we never would’ve experienced any of these things.
Not everyone is fortunate enough to visit a beautiful place, especially if there is a charge just to drive down there for 1-10 minutes or maybe 3 hours.
