Skagit Island Marine State Park has the feel of the San Juan Islands but is closer and more accessible to most Puget Sound area locations. Located within kayaking distance of Cornet Bay in Deception Pass State Park, this little island has it all. Forest, meadows, rock outcroppings, sandy beaches and blue water are all on offer here.
Despite its small size, Skagit Island provides camping for all boaters, as well as primitive sites for paddlers. For those who prefer to camp on their boats, there is one mooring buoy on the northwest side of the island.
This may be a getaway that offers solitude and a feeling of seclusion, even though it’s quite close to civilization.
Skagit Island Marine State Park is a 24-acre marine camping park in Skagit Bay.
The park features primitive campsites and a vault toilet. Campsites that are on the point are for all users. The four campsites west of the vault toilet are for guests arriving by human powered watercraft such as kayaks, and are part of the Cascadia Marine Trail. Gas stoves are recommended. No fire stoves or firewood are available. There is no potable water or garbage service to the island. Visitors must pack out what they pack in.
Overnight vehicle fees must be paid at the Cornet Bay boat launch.
