Blake Island Marine Park

Blake Island State Marine Park is a 475 acre marine camping park with five miles of saltwater beach shoreline providing magnificent views of the Olympic Mountains and the Seattle skyline. The park is only reachable by tour boat or private boat. Indian-style salmon dinners and demonstrations of traditional Northwest Indian dancing are offered at Tillicum Village. Blake Island is accessible by boat, usually from Manchester, or from Southworth — both on Yukon Harbor. The West side of the island is protected; good anchoring for boats.

Marine life to be found here includes Quillback, Brown Rockfish, Lingcod, occasional Cabezon, Greenlings, with schools of Striped Sea perch, Pile Perch, and Kelp Perch. Sometimes, dozens of Red Irish Lords (in many shades of red, brown and purple) are present.   

There are three campgrounds on the island. The East campground has a bathroom facility with showers, sand volleyball court, beach, kids playground, bbq and picnic tables, and store.   blake.island@parks.wa.gov

The Blake Island campground is only accessible by boat.  It has 44 standard sites, two primitive sites, three water trail sites, one marine dump station, four restrooms (one ADA), and one shower area. All campsites are first come, first served. During winter months, the water is turned off in the west campground and the restroom is closed. A vault toilet is available.

Three Cascadia Marine Trail sites are located on the west end of the island. These sites are for use by canoers and kayakers only. The primitive sites are available on the south side.

A group camp is available by reservation for groups up to 100 people. Fees vary with size of the group.
