Exploring Kopachuck State Park & Cutts Island, Trip #7

Kopachuck is in South Puget Sound south of Gig Harbor about 8 ish miles.  Tiny Raft Island nearly dries out during lower tides in summer allowing walking access from the main section of the park.  Easily accessed from Highway 16 & Tacoma Narrows, the park also has a Cascadia Marine Trail campsite, day use, and is a great place to paddle to all year round.

You can launch from Fox Island, Horse Head Inlet, or from other points north of the park.  For a longer trip, consider paddling in from Tacoma using the flood current.  See more info in the book, Trip #7.
