This undeveloped, 6,560-acre park is a group of islands just south of Chilkat State Park. It is 13 air miles south of Haines. Access is problematic due to high and unpredictable winds, making a regular anchorage difficult. Kayaks have the best bet since they can be brought on shore and have a shallow draft. A bay on the middle island of Shikosi is best. Beaches are rocky. Be sure to bring your boat above high tide mark when pulling it on shore.
