We boat to Blake at least once a year. It is a beautiful island with beach combing, hiking, wildlife and the Tillicum Village experience. A great experience this year was being greeted at the docks by the marina host and another boater. He directed me to where there was room to dock and they lent a hand bringing in the... More

My wife and I have been visiting Blake Island State Park off and on for several years. The island is a wonderful destination! In the summer the dock space is quite crowded if you are coming by private boat, but there are some mooring buoys and plenty of space to anchor. We usually do a walk around the island. There... More

This place is overrun by raccoons. If you are in the marina you have to keep all windows closed or they will be in the cabin. No - not "only if you leave food out" - the competition is just that stiff DAY or NIGHT. If there are more than 3 on the dock they will not yield to people... More

So, if you have a boat, or a friend with a boat, this is an excellent trip. A walk around the island is about 4.5 miles and can be done in under two hours. It is really nice and great views of Puget Sound. You can also camp here, but apparently the park ranger is bored and likes to mess... More

There is new sheriff in town! Just when you thought we could not have a more authoritative ranger than Paul Ruppert, here comes ranger Casey! What a joke these two are. They can take a nature lover and magically turn them into felons!

I have been to Blake Island a number of times now, and have always had an immensely enjoyable time there - that is until the final night of my most recent visit. A group of us sailed out to the island, and stayed a total of three nights. The very first night we were lectured for nearly a half an... More

We were really pleased to experience this wonderful State Park island located in the Puget Sound. The island is accessible only by boat and most people visit via a local tour boat excursion that includes a Native American dancing and salmon dinner. The concessionaire building has in addition to the ticketed Dinner Show a gift shop, bar and restrooms. Outside... More

This state park is an island accessible only by boat, about 45 minutes from Downtown Seattle (if you take the unadvertised Argosy Cruise boat to the island). You land at the dock right outside Tillicum Village. I immediately headed straight for the hiking trails, which lead all over the island. Nearly tame deer were munching on the grass, barely giving...
