Blake Island State Park is a 475-acre marine camping park with five miles of saltwater shoreline providing magnificent views of the Olympic Mountains and the Seattle skyline. There are 51 campsites joined by 15.5 miles of hiking and bicycle trails. An underwater park provides seasonal opportunities for clamming, crabbing, snorkeling and swimming. Wildlife-watching opportunities on the island include black tail deer, eagles, osprey, geese and other native animals. The island is a favorite location for kayaking, bird watching and year-round camping.

Blake Island is also the home of Tillicum Village, a Native American establishment of huge popularity, well worth a visit. If you don’t have a boat, or you are not a kayaker, you can purchase a ride over and back on the Tillicum Village Tour boat. For information and reservations, call Argosy Cruises 206-623-1445.
