About This Spot

Deception Pass State Park encompasses over 4,000 acres and has more than 75,000 feet of saltwater shoreline and another nearly 34,000 feet of freshwater shoreline on three lakes. The park is centered around the picturesque, quarter-mile long Deception Pass Bridge that stands about 180 feet above the rip-tide filled waters. The park is full of scenic beaches, rocky coves, lakes, and forests. Bowman Bay has a half-mile long sandy crescent beach encompassed by rocky shores. South of the bay, Lighthouse Point is rocky headland at the mouth of Deception Pass with several grass-covered rock outcroppings above the water which provide wide vistas. Along the trail to Lighthouse Point, there is a short spur loop trail to Lottie Point where there are additional, though more limited, views.
