Eagle Island Marine State Park

Cute little Eagle Island is a great place to moor or anchor your boat, ogle Mount Rainier, relax on a sandy beach and watch harbor seals close to the shore. 

Located in Balch Passage between Anderson and McNeil islands, this state park property near Tacoma is known by boaters as the gateway to South Puget Sound. Eagle Island Marine State Park is accessible only by watercraft and has three mooring buoys for overnight stays.

Washington’s iconic peak Mount Rainier is a showstopper on the eastern horizon. Even on partly sunny days, the 14,411-foot giant may be visible, hovering over the clouds or the land.  
With so little distance to cover (by foot or by boat) on Eagle Island, you can watch the sunset and sunrise, and relax in between.
