Kopachuck State Park is a 109-acre marine and camping park with 5,600 feet of saltwater shoreline on Henderson Bay. One portion of the park, Cutts Island (or “Deadman’s Island”) is a half mile from shore and reachable only by boat. The park provides scenic views of sunsets, the Olympic Mountains and Puget Sound. The name “Kopachuck” originated from “Chinook Jargon,” the trade language of the Pacific Coastal Indians. Kopachuck is a merging of two words: “Kopa” meaning “at,” and “chuck” meaning “water.” This scenic park was once a seasonal fishing and clamming site of the Puyallup and Nisqually tribes.
