Skagit Island is one of many small islands in Skagit Bay. Skagit Bay is fed by the Skagit River whose waters come from the North Cascades and Canada. The 21-acre island has a primitive trail around its perimeter with best views to the south and neighboring Hope Island (North), also a Washington State Park island.
