  • Trails lead to a marsh where wintering water birds are protected. Fantastic views of water and nearby islands. 
  • Surprisingly pleasant little park. We have visited parks on many of the islands in the San Juan Group. This one was small but really nice. The spit, the bird area, the channels - everything was nice. 
  • Its an interesting land form. Its a bit to crowded for my taste. i have bern to better places. Roads nartow. Blind curves drive slow through privste land with farm animals.

  • Gorgeous oceanfront park featuring a unique sand spit that reaches ... almost ... not quite to Frost Island. Can sit in the wood shelters and watch blue herons and other ocean birds.
  • Nice getaway.. good for camping and canoeing..
  • Great little rest stop for travelers but smells of bathroom waist
  • Great beachcombing
