Tamara Quays was once a mobile home park, Kingfisher Estates. Construction of Kingfisher Estates in the early 1970s included a dike system, which diverted a portion of Rowdy Creek into a newly manmade Kingfisher Lake. As part of the Salmon River Estuary restoration process, the Forest Service bought the land, removed the dikes and mobile home infrastructure. The entire area is beginning to restore itself to a more natural backwater estuarine ecosystem.
