Illahee State Park Travel Guide: 9 reviews and 13 photos
Located just northeast of downtown Bremerton, this park preserves a small section of forest and beach on one of the many waterways that make up Puget Sound.
The park has camping sites, beach access, and short walking trails through the section of forest. Several picnic shelters are scattered through the park, and some these may be reserved. A few of the picnic areas are located right down by the beach so that you may catch, cook, and eat all in the same general area if you so desire (though it should be noted that fish cleaning areas are somewhat limited in most of the picnic areas).
A Discovery Pass or day use fee is required when visiting this state park with your vehicle. If you come by public transit or otherwise on foot, this pass is not required.
This park has a seasonal closure, which starts in late September or early October and runs until early April. For the exact dates please see the Washington State Parks web site closure schedule, which may change from time to time based on weather conditions and other conditions.
- Pros:Dense Forest is a preserve of Forest, no extremely busy streets nearby (though some are moderately so), good picnic spot and beach offers activities. Wintering bird life arrives about time of park's closure.
- Cons:Small state park without extensive hiking trail system or major unique features. Campground only has some spots. Seasonal closure of park.
- In a nutshell:May be a decent place to stop on your way through the area, or a good place to camp if you want economical access to Seattle (1 hour ferry ride from Bremerton).
