Posey Island State Park is a public recreation area consisting of 1-acre (0.40 ha) Posey Island in San Juan County, Washington. The island is located .25 miles (0.40 km) north of Pearl Island, near Roche Harbor, San Juan Island. It has about 1,000 feet (300 m) of saltwater shoreline and is part of the Cascadia Marine Trail, with campsites restricted to visitors arriving in non-motorized watercraft. The island-park is managed by the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission. It became a state park in 1960 under lease from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.[2]
