Cutts Island is a 2-acre marine park situated on Carr Inlet. During low tide, the island has a very nice sand beach. The island features clay cliffs that allow visitors to walk to the top of the island and enjoy the view. The island is covered with various vegetation, and visitors need to be aware of poison oak. During seal pup season, pups will rest on the sandy beach during low tide. Visitors should keep a safe distance away from seal pups.
Picnic & Day-Use Facilities
This marine park does not have potable water, garbage or sanitation service. Visitors must pack-out what they pack-in (This includes human waste).
Boaters in vessels with no toilet facilities are encouraged to use a human waste removal system such as a WAG bag or RESTOP which contains and treats the waste and can be deposited in the trash when returning home. These bag systems are available for purchase from a variety of outdoor vendors and be used alone or with a simple bucket toilet (a 5 gallon bucket with a snap on seat).
Overnight camping and campfires are prohibited on the Island.
Located in Pierce County in the Puget Sound, Cutts Island offers scuba diving, and there is an underwater park located half-mile south of the park, off the beach of Kopachuck State Park. There is a natural spit on the north side of the island. Boaters should be careful as the water can get shallow in this area. The nearest pumpout is located south of the park at Penrose State Park. Additional information can be found in the Boating Program.
There are eight buoys available. Moorage fees are charged year round for mooring at docks, floats, and buoys from 1 p.m. to 8 a.m. The moorage buoy fee is $15 per night payable in the day-use parking lot at Kopachuck State Park.
