Located at the entrance to Squamish Harbor, just north of Hood Canal Bridge, Shine Tidelands State Park makes a peaceful stop on a Hood Canal or Kitsap Peninsula road trip.
This little day-use park offers fishing and crabbing, and its shoreline is popular with kayakers and beach walkers. A small wetland on the property offers excellent birding. Low tide brings out oysters and clams, which makes the park popular with shellfish harvesters.
Shine Tidelands State Park is a 249-acre day-use park with 5,000 feet of tideland along Bywater Bay.
PICNIC & DAY-USE FACILITIES
The park provides four unsheltered picnic tables, available first come, first served. Fires are not permitted on the beach or on park property.
WATER ACTIVITIES & FEATURES
The park allows for primitive hand-launching of personal watercraft. There is no fee.
