Blake Island State Park
Welcome to Blake Island Marine State Park
Blake Island is a densely wooded island
accessible only by boat. Visitors can view
Puget Sound, ferry boats on the water and
the lights of Seattle only a few miles away.
Visitors can enhance their excursion to Blake Island
at Tillicum's great cedar longhouse. Guests are
invited to savor a unique Northwest Coast Indian
dining experience featuring award-winning salmon
baked on cedar stakes over alder fires, followed by a
Northwest Coast Indian style presentation. A schedule
and sign-up board for dining and a gift gallery are
located in the longhouse. For more information, call
Blake Island Marine State Park offers picnicking,
boating, fishing, hiking and beach exploration. For
overnight campers, there are 44 standard campsites
(32 during off-peak season), 12 primitive (during
off-peak season) and three on the Cascadia Marine
Trail. There also are about 1,300 feet of moorage
dock and 24 moorage buoys. A perimeter
road circles the entire island, and there are 5
miles of beaches.
For shelter or group camp reservations, call

Due to the moist climate, vegetation grows rapidly
on the island. Vegetation includes a wide variety of
native Northwest trees and shrubs. Some trees and
shrubs were imported by Mrs. Trimble and are still
growing on the island today. Wildlife seen in the park
includes deer, chipmunks, racoons, river otters, mink,
and many types of birds, including bald eagles.
Please take your garbage and recycle items with you,
and properly dispose of them at home or at a mainland
disposal site. If you need a plastic bag for your debris,
just ask a ranger, who will give you a bag to help you
pack it out.
