Jarrell Cove State Park
Accessible only by bridge or by boat, Jarrell Cove State Park is a sensory extravaganza, with a chorus of bird calls, saltwater and conifer smells, dense tree stands and opal-colored water all around.
Enclosed by Puget Sound and surrounded by Case Inlet and Pickering Passage, this park on Harstine Island is a watery haven with excellent opportunities for swimming, diving and boating. An amphitheater, sports fields and camping make for entertainment and activities on terra firma. The sound of a boat chugging up to a buoy, the smell of a campfire and the sight of kids playing volleyball create a patchwork of humans in harmony with nature.
Whether you're there for the peace or the sociability, a day or a weekend at Jarrell Cove will put a smile on your face long after you're back to the grind.
