Indianola is a census-designated place (CDP) in Kitsap County, Washington, United States. The population was 3,500 at the 2010 census.
Indianola was formed on the portion of the Port Madison Indian Reservation which had been allotted to KaKue aka "Beedee" in 1886.In the early 20th century, most transportation on Puget Sound was by steamer, and a community’s dock was often its only lifeline to the outside world. Such was the case for the young community of Indianola Beach, and by 1918 a steamer was docking there every weekend. Daily ferry service was initiated in 1919 when Carl Hendrix organized twelve passengers to pay in advance for one year’s daily service between Indianola Beach and Seattle.
