Our own "San Juan" island just a couple miles from Kitsap and King counties.

I almost hate to share this one, because it already can get a bit crowded on weekends and nice summer days. I have only been visiting the island for 60 years, and it has not yet... read more

I almost hate to share this one, because it already can get a bit crowded on weekends and nice summer days. I have only been visiting the island for 60 years, and it has not yet disappointed me. 5 miles of hiking trails if you want exercise. The area next to the marina is beautiful and the view towards Rainier... More

Park rangers were very helpful about how to protect food from wildlife and always available for questions. In a freak accident, I hurt my knee badly when I tried to jump up to get a Frisbee. The head ranger radioed Argosy the next morning and arranged for a wheelchair to get me at the boat ramp and then on to... More

We had a great time. Beautiful place. As others have said. Obnoxious, over zealous Park Rangers. At 6pm they felt the need to remind us to not use the fire pit after 10. What? I will be in bed by ten. They are constantly present, making sure you paid, reminding fof rules, etc. Other than that, this is a great... More

We took our boat over to have the lunch and show then walked 3 miles on the island. Be sure to bring walking shoes if you venture out on the trails. Very welcomed by rangers in the marina. The show has improved and is more authentic. A must for Seattle visitors

Went to Blake Island with a group from a conference, not knowing what exactly it was. I was pleasantly surprised and now I want to go back so that I can enjoy the entire island. We had the meal and watched the show after the meal. Very educational and the meal was really good. We got to walk around the... More

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
