About Jarrell Cove State Park

If you have a boat, you can join the in-crowd at Jarrel Cove State Park. Situated off the beaten path on the northwest end of Harstine Island, most visitors roll into the park on a boat instead of a car. Well, technically it would be floating in. But transportation specifics aside, this park is a great place to escape busy highways and city streets. Jarrell Cove is like the big papa park to several other parks scattered on separate islands around the area. Harstine Island, McMicken Island, Stretch Point, Eagle Island and Hope Island State Parks are all administered by Jarrel Cove, with Harstine Island being the only one accessible by car. If you don’t have a boat, you’re out of luck reaching the others. But don’t let your lack of aquatic transport keep you from making a visit. There are plenty of activities to keep even us land-lubbers entertained.
