Cornet Bay

Cornet Bay is the main saltwater access point for boaters at Deception Pass.  With 6 lanes of launching space, floats alongside, moorage docks for overnight use, and parking space for over 100 vehicles, Cornet Bay is a starting point for adventures around the park waters, the San Juan Islands and beyond.  The calm waters alongside the docks are popular spots for crabbing and fishing.

For land-based pursuits, Hoypus Point Natural Forest Area lies to the east.  Amidst one of the largest remaining tracts of old growth forest in western Washington, the Hoypus Point trails offer solitude and tranquility away from the bustle of the more popular westward park areas.  The Hoypus Point trails can be accessed via two trail heads along the portion of Cornet Bay Road that is closed to vehicles.  Hoypus Point is part of the larger Hoypus Forest area, which contains the most expansive trail system in the park.

Please remember:

  • Overnight parking requires payment of $10 fee.
  • Launching and moorage are subject to Washington State Parks fees.  Please click here for current fee info.
  • Bikes and horses are not allowed on the Hopyus Point Natural Forest Area trails.
