About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

Island Lake County Park, is a small lake outside of Poulsbo, offering a mostly paved trail through the forest section and along the waterfront. Along with the trails, there is a sandy beach to play, dig, and build sand castles in, a NON TRAILERABLE boat launch and a fishing pier. This is a great well rounded park for families that like to enjoy nature in many different ways.

Next to the smaller parking lot and building, there is a nice playground with picnic benches along the outskirts of the play area. A perfect spot to stop for a snack and play away from the water. The paved trail that leaves this area leads to the waterfront, where you can enjoy the sand and shady area from the trees.

Park restrooms are closed annually for the winter season from October 1st through March 31st.
