    This was a pleasant surprise when I finally got over here. It's a pretty little park on the point, with some easy walking trails. Fantastic views of the waterways and the Olympic Peninsula to the south and west. Point Roberts is sort of a geographical anomaly - a little part of U.S. territory that's separated from the rest of the country by a stretch of B.C.

    Amazing views of Mount Baker (I think?), gorgeous sunsets into the water and the beach is filled with amazing looking driftwood. There's also a washroom and picnic tables, lots of parking. Very beautiful Park!

    Really cool Sunsweap sculpture/monument. Aligns with the North Star. Nice park with great views. Good camping site complete with cool, clean water for washing up.

    We just had a family 'luau' at the picnic shelter - it was an excellent location for this - the park staff were great - they moved additional picnic tables into place for us, made sure the fire pit was ready, and looked after all of the garbage. Would highly recommend reserving it if you are wanting to have a great family/friends get together.
