Doe Island Marine State Park

Doe Island Marine State Park is a veritable dot on the map next to Orcas Island. But, as far as dots go, you could not ask for more. 

Once on terra firma, the island’s 0.3-mile perimeter loop is a short, rugged hike, so bring your good boots and trekking poles. Campsites are first come, first served, and all provide glorious views. The island’s rocky south side features two pocket coves perfect for beaching a kayak.  

While the south and east sides are stony and bare, the island’s north and west sides are pleasantly shaded, and Orcas Island is visible across the narrow channel that separates little Doe from its mammoth neighbor.

Park features

Doe Island Marine State Park is a quiet 7-acre marine moorage and camping park with 2,049 feet of saltwater shoreline southeast of Orcas Island. 

Accessible only by boat, the park features views of the Salish Sea and surrounding mountains and islands. 

There is no potable water on Doe Island and visitors must pack out what they pack in.
