Indianola lies within the boundaries of the Port Madison Reservation. In 1916, it was a summer/weekend community that only could be reached by steamboat. Today, it is a small, friendly rural village known as a haven for artists. The 900-foot Indianola Dock was built when the Mosquito Fleet supplied the majority of transportation on Puget Sound. It is a local landmark that's considered one of the best places in the area to watch the stars or any major celestial event since it juts hundreds of feet out into the water. No moorage, but you can pull up your kayak or canoe.
The Indianola Country Store has been an integral part of this tiny waterfront community since the 1920s. Besides offering the essential grocery and general store items a small town would need, it provides a wonderful deli, espresso bar, fresh-made soups, sandwiches, cookies and ice cream cones! The store also has local products and art.
