Fox Island is located just off Kitsap Peninsula in the Puget Sound. The island is quiet and fairly rural and is accessible via a bridge near Gig Harbor. It enjoys spectacular views of looming Mount Rainer across Puget Sound, and this lovely lush island is best explored by boat. The view of the iconic Fox Island lighthouse, with Mount Rainer in the background, is picture-perfect. Fox Island Historical Museum, with more than 3,000 artifacts, is a great place to learn about the island’s history as well as that of the people who lived on it. Chapel on Echo Bay, on the edge of the water, is a must-see; this lovely 100-year-old chapel is also a popular venue for romantic weddings. Kopachuck State Park on Henderson Bay is a 109-acre marine park with 5,600 feet of shoreline. Fox Island Sand Spit is a public camping park, while the Fox Island Nature Center is a beautiful protected area with deep forest, year-round island streams, and a number of wetlands.
