What can I see and do at Blind Island State Marine Park?

Escape the summer crowds and all signs of civilization on this totally uninhabited Island. The modest but comfortable campsites can be your home base for many wonderful nearby paddles. Shaw and Orcas Island are very close by and have all the services you could require to spend as much time as you like on tiny Blind Island.

Overnight camping is only available to human and wind powered boats. The ferries pass right by the Island but without any kind of dock even small motorboats have a hard time landing. The Island has picnic facilities and a few nearby moorage buoys for larger motorboats.

Where is Blind Island State Marine Park?

Blind Island is right between Orcas and Shaw Island in Blind Bay. The public dock right near the Orcas Island ferry terminal is a great jump off point but you can get here easily from Shaw or Lopez. Be sure that you have the correct tide and reef information before heading out because the sea can be treacherous.

How much does Blind Island State Marine Park cost?

There are fees for camping and day use at this Park. This includes use of the mooring buoys. The fees can vary seasonally.
