of favorite islands. Beautiful place - good hiking, water was cold but swim-able (sort of). Moorings available - no services except "out houses". The Water Taxi (Deer Harbor Charters) was great - knowledgeable, friendly, informative Captain. A little pricey but worth it.

We began our visit hunting for fossils, then hiked up and down the island, finishing with a dip in the ocean. Beautiful well-maintained park with some of the friendliest, smiley-est rangers we've encountered. Clean facilities and drinkable water.

We have been going to Sucia for 35 years. We continue to marvel at the beauty of this magic island. The State of Washington runs a family friendly and lovely boating paradise with two docks, multiple mooring bouys and many camping areas and picnic areas....More

This was a boat access island and is worth the effort to visit. Park camp sights picnic sights and water available. They even had compost toilets. We ended up visiting twice during our week long stay on Orcus Island.

You have to arrange your own boat transportation to get here, but so worth it! Bring your boat here and anchor or fetch a buoy in any of the great coves available on the island!

A gorgeous island with some of the best hikes ever, and great temperatures year round. 40-75 degrees although a little rainier during the Winter of course.

Yes! Even when busy there tend to be lots of available campsites. They aren't all necessarily clustered in one place and if you pack light enough that you can hike a bit you'll definitely be good! There's lots of camping... More

The campsites are all first come, first served. They have never filled up in the history of the park.
