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

we love Sucia State Park. To hike, kayak, camp, relax. It's clean, quiet, with green lawn, picnic tables, covered shelters.

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

We took a four-day, three-night kayaking and camping trip to Sucia Island as a family of four (2 teenage boys) with Moondance of Bellingham – there’s a longer review of the company and their (excellent) service on their Tripadvisor page. Our trip to Sucia came towards the end of a big road trip north from California, and was a real... More

In all our travels in the San Juans in Oct., Sucia Island was our favorite. Our boat was anchored in Echo bay, we struck out from there and hiked in the park doing the 6 mi. end to end trail. This hike being moderately strenuous afforded the hiker countless coastal and inward views. Many species of birds along with sightings... More
