Blind Island State Park

Blind Bay, Shaw Island
Eastsound, WA 98245


Blind Island is a small, three-acre marine camping park located near the entrance of Blind Bay, Shaw Island. This natural area includes 1,280-feet of saltwater and rocky shoreline, with year-round moorage available. This park is part of the Cascadia Marine Trail. All of the onshore campsites are for the exclusive use of boaters arriving by human- or wind-powered watercraft. Be sure to set your crab traps in Blind Bay, an area closed to commercial crabbing. Results can be spectacular.

Historical Information

In the early part of the century, a squatter set up housekeeping to the point of building a small house and storage sheds. His lifestyle was mostly that of a hermit, living off his work as a fisherman and tilling a small garden spot, evidence of which still remains today. This man dug several holes into the rock, evidently to be used as cisterns. There is a small spring, around which he built a concrete retainer that still is in place. The water is unsafe to drink. All buildings were removed in 1972 due to their unsafe conditions.
