Sandspit Point

State Marine Park

Alaska State Parks Logo

Sandspit Point State Marine Park is located at the northeast tip of Fox Island (Renard Island) in Resurrection Bay, twelve miles southeast of Seward. The park includes steep, inaccessible uplands to the west and a half-mile long spit to the east, a total of 560 acres. The north beach of the spit is fine sand while the south beach is medium to large size cobbles. Marine tide pools abound near the west end of the spit, and a low spruce forest dominates the higher east end.

Sandspit Point SMP offers spectacular panoramic views of Resurrection Bay to the north and Eldorado Narrows to the south.

The variety of marine life found in tide pools, the ease of launching and landing on the sandy northern beach, and suitability for beach camping make this a popular destination for kayakers. There is a single tent platform atop a knoll on the spit with a bear resistant storage locker. The southern beach is not recommended for landings due to its rocky nature and the often heavy surf. There is no fresh water available in the park.
