I lived in Seattle for a season when I was 15 years old. My Dad had meet a sweet Indian Woman. After learning I'd only be in town until the end of summer, she said we just had to visit Tillicum Village on Blake Island! She worked there and was able to offer us a complementary ferry cruise, and admission.... More

You get a free Harbor cruise with a view of Seattle with your CityPass, but if you pay to upgrade your ticket to go to Tillicum Village, you get a longer Harbor Cruise, a FABULOUS salmon dinner and you can stay for the Native Indian Show or opt out of the show in favor of getting up from dinner when...

Read a lot of the reviews from people not liking the park rangers. This park, like all the other state parks has rules and regulations that pertain to ALL of us. Some feel that they are special, and when caught (like the one reviewer who complained about the ranger taking their dinghy off of the buoy when they KNEW it... More

One of the best views of Seattle and Mt Rainer and from the comfort of your tent on the Sound. We truly enjoyed our weekend enjoyed the abundant wildlife and wonderful trails. We had an opportunity to meet the park ranger, Paul, and several of his staff and found them to be friendly, knowledgeable and especially eager and helpful with... More

On the ferry ride we were told stories about the Indian tribes and their legends. The lodge on the island is lovely with a big gift shop with beautiful Indian made items. The clam appetizer so delicious and the salmon dinner

Had a wonderful time at Blake Island. Arrived on a busy Friday afternoon in July and were greeted by the Harbormaster. He was very accomadating in helping us nab a spot. I was nervous about the raccoon situation since we have a 3 yr old and I envisioned raccoons clawing at our tent in the middle of the night, but... More

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...

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
