We camp here every year with our kids and it never gets old! The trails are so well maintained, the beaches are gorgeous, the sandstone formations make for really fun exploring and the campgrounds are very well kept and much more private than most campgrounds on the islands.

Sucia is one of the jewels of the San Juan Islands...but you already knew that. Sucia can only be reached by boat...but you already knew that. Fossil Bay has a dock but is crowded. Echo Bay is exposed, but has some nice but crowded campsites. The best campsite is #26 on the SW side of Shallow Bay, accessible by boat... More

Sucia Island is a marvel of wildlife filled woods with just a few well groomed trails connecting good campgrounds and picnic sites. Locals described it as having a very different vibe from the larger island, I imagine it has the vibe of Orcas before roads were paved and plumbing installed. Sucia is similar to Blake Island, a similar mid-sound state... More

After the captain of our 60-passenger vessel demonstrated his masterful docking skills, we disembarked to enjoy the island's well-maintained hiking trails. The interpretive signs located on the trails are well-done. There are several beautiful campsites on the island (reservations are probably helpful during the high season). We made use of the nice picnic shelter located near the docks. There are... More

Sucia Island State Park is only reached by boat (unless you have a private helicopter). It can get very busy during the height of the boating season. If you want a mooring buoy, it could be tough. The island is very walkable and has connecting scenic trails. There are no services on the island, so be sure to bring everything... More

Went to Sucia a few nights ago with some friends- spring and fall are my favorite times to go because no one else is there- we had the whole island to ourselves! I live on Orcas but Sucia is a world away. Amazing place to hike, bike, kayak, and camp. If you bring your own boat you can have all... More
