Small Rock of an Island

Blind Island is tiny. It's more of a rock than anything else. There are a few sites, each with a picnic table and one composting toilet. There is no water. In fair weather, there is little shade available from the sparse trees and very little shelter then the weather is not so fair.

It's possible…

Bring your Raccoon repellent if you are visiting Blind Island

Blind Island is tiny but for a kayaker it is a perfect spot to camp while touring the San Juan Islands. At first glance Blind looks like one of a dozen small mound islands in this area BUT it is part of the Cascadia Marine Trail which makes it a gem. The majority of this beautiful island group is…

Location

Blind Island State Park is located in Washington

Directions

Blind Island is located west of the Shaw Island ferry dock and one mile south of the Orcas Island ferry dock. There are no kayak launch sites at or near either ferry docks. Boaters should approach the island from the northeast (Shaw Island ferry terminal) to access the four mooring buoys located on the south side of Blind Bay. Note the reef marker 200 yards east of Blind Island. DO NOT approach from the northwest as there is an extensive reef in that area.

About This Campground

You made it to a designated site along the Cascadia Marine Trail, our Nation's longest recreation water trail! Blind Island is a small, three-acre marine camping park located on the north side of Shaw Island. All of the campsites are offered on a first-come, first-served basis and are for the exclusive use of boaters arriving by human or wind-powered watercraft. Recreational activities include camping, picnicking, non-motorized boating, and wildlife watching. The BLM cooperatively manages the area with Washington State Parks. Know Before You Go: Blind Island is open YEAR ROUND with very primitive camping; there is no fresh water available on site. Access can be challenging due to the rocky and shallow landing. On October 7, 2014, San Juan County became the first County in the U.S. designated as a voluntary Leave No Trace Area. Point of Interest: Best access to the island is at a small pocket cove at the southwest side of Blind Island (hint: look for the State Parks and San Juan Islands National Monument logo sign onshore).
