Saddlebag Island Marine State Park is a public recreation area made up of 26-acre (11 ha) Saddlebag Island, part of the San Juan Islands, in Skagit County, Washington.[2] The island sits in Padilla Bay four miles (6.4 km) northeast of Anacortes, Washington. Dot Island[3] and Huckleberry Island[4] lie nearby. Saddlebag Island was held in private ownership until 1974, when the state purchased it for use as a state park.[2]

Activities and amenities

Park activities include hiking, boating, crabbing, diving, saltwater fishing, swimming, water skiing, birdwatching, and wildlife viewing. The island has four primitive campsites, one of which is reserved for human- or wind-powered visitors on the Cascadia Marine Trail. The island has no mooring buoys or docks.[2]
