About Hope Island State Park

Always dreamed of owning your own private island? Well, Hope Island State Park gets you pretty close to fulfilling that dream. The small island in Puget Sound is only accessible by boat, which means it doesn’t get too crowded and feels worlds away from the hustle and bustle of the mainland. Hike through the park’s old growth forests and salt marshes, or just chill out on the 1.5 miles of sandy beach. Kayaking or canoeing through the calm water that surrounds the island is also a super popular way to spend the day. Unsurprisingly, clamming and fishing are good here, too! So hop in a boat and motor over to Hope Island pronto for some sun, sand, and—hear that?—silence.
