“a 4,134-acre marine and camping park”

Deception Pass State Park is a 4,134-acre marine and camping park with 77,000 feet of saltwater shoreline, and 33,900 feet of freshwater shoreline on three lakes. Rugged cliffs drop to meet the turbulent waters of Deception Pass. The park is outstanding for breath-taking views, old-growth forests and abundant wildlife.

Rugged coastal headlands, placid coves, tidal pools teeming with crusty critters, towering ancient evergreens, and breathtaking views of the Olympic Mountains-Deception Pass State Park packs it in. And with waterfront campsites and easy access from Pugetopolis, it's easy to see why Deception Pass is Washington's most popular state park (over three million annual visitors). This hike samples the park's rugged northern headlands, delivering spectacular views of straits and bays and of Deception Pass itself, with its treacherous waters and majestic bridge.

With over 4000 acres and nearly 40 miles of trails, Deception Pass State Park offers far more than the small section this hike passes through. But what a section! From the CCC Interpretive Center you'll travel out and back to Rosario Head and then likewise for Lighthouse Point and Lottie Point. First, visit the CCC center to gain an appreciation of what FDR's Depression-era program did for our country. Hardworking corps were stationed right here at Deception Pass, transforming this corner of Washington into a prime state park. Trails, campgrounds, and sturdy structures throughout the park are all part of their legacy.

West Beach is supposed to be one of the better agate beaches in Washington State.
