Illahee State Park is a 75-acre (30 ha) Washington state park located in the hamlet of Illahee, just north of East Bremerton, on Port Orchard Bay, part of Puget Sound. The word "Illahee" means earth or country in Native American tradition. The park harbors one of the country's oldest Pacific yews, which has been standing for approximately 400 years. The park was acquired in seven parcels between 1934 and 1954. Park activities include picnicking, camping, hiking, boating, and shellfish harvesting.[2]
