Triton Cove

Are you the type to start a road trip at 4 a.m., crossing fingers for a fabulous sunrise? Time your departure for an early stop at Triton Cove State Park on your drive up or down Hood Canal. 

Known for dramatic daybreaks on clear mornings, this tiny day-use park is quieter than its northern neighbor, Dosewallips State Park. Triton Cove’s well-maintained, ADA-accessible boat launch also makes this a prime spot for in-season fishing and crabbing – and you can fish all day long.  

Even if you don’t have a boat or a car, Triton Cove is accessible locally by public transportation, as Mason Transit Authority and Jefferson County Transit stop here.
