Fort Flagler State Park
Fort Flagler State Park Review
A 15- to 20-minute drive south and east of town leads to the tip of Marrowstone Island and this 784-acre state park. Built in the 1890s, Fort Flagler was a military training center through the world wars, and still has old gun placements overlooking its beaches. This fort, along with Fort Worden in Port Townsend and Fort Casey on Whidbey Island, was constructed as part of an "Iron Triangle" of defense for Puget Sound. Today the park has campgrounds and 7 miles of wooded and oceanfront hiking trails along remnants of old army roads. The inlets of the island are great for paddling around; you can rent canoes and kayaks—and stock up on picnic items—at Nordland General Store (360/385–0777, nordlandgeneralstore.com), near the park entrance.
