Hope Island South

Hope Island (South) Professional Review and Guide

"Hope Island is a state park with beaches, meadows, forest trails, and the remnants of a farm homestead. Access from various sides of the South Sound is easy using the Hammersley Inlet, Boston Harbor, or Pickering/Peale Passage routes described here. Hope Island can be incorporated into a single-day trip around adjacent Squaxin Island or a multiday circumnavigation of nearby Harstine Island. Other camping possibilities are the two Cascadia Marine Trail sites at Jarrell Cove State Park (7.8 miles) and Joemma Beach State Park (7.6 miles) on the Key Peninsula.

The Boston Harbor route requires an open-water crossing and exposure to possible tide rips in Dana Passage. Currents on the Peale Passage route may exceed 1.5 knots at times."
