  • We have stayed here twice. You need to book well in advance right when the window opens but it is worth it. I don't think there is a bad site at this small park. Wonderful wildlife viewing and no crow...  more »
  • There's minimal camping on San Juan Island, and there are not a lot of camp spaces, so book in advance to avoid disappointment. Forget bringing your big jacked up RV to this island. The islanders disc...  more »

  • Quiet, rustic, camp ground with amazing views of the water. No services at the sites, but, the bathrooms are clean, nice, and modern. Easy access to the tide pools and a nice gravel beach. Big grassy area to play. Many stores have nice shade and are pretty level. Fire pits have good quality cooking grates.
  • A quiet getaway from the busier Friday Harbor streets. My wife and I rode our bicycles out there with our bags. Wouldn't recommend going that far unless you have a road bike and are packing light, butt he ride was worth it. The views are great and it was a grwat place to unwind. Firewood was available from the camp host and drinking water is at the camp host lodge near the restrooms.
  • Wow, this place is amazing. Camp for at least a day or two, book a kayak trip. Go check our the harbor.. Really an amazing launching point for lots of activities.
  • This was an amazing place. Clean grounds.. Great views of Vancouver Island... Wild.like is so cool.. Candian geese... Otters...birds... Butterflies. I highly recommend this place to camp... It's quite... Has bathrooms with sinks and toilets that flush. Big plus!!! You can kayak if that's your thing. Definitely want to go back.
  • There is a reason we pick this park for our yearly campout, because the state parks don't have camp grounds. But really, this campground is quite nice. You can launch your kayak from it to go see whales, whole they last. There's a whole wildlife refuge just if the bluff. Sometimes a naturalist will show up and give talks on the interesting habitats that comprise the San Juan Islands. This is also a great location for scuba diving, as the water remains clear year-round due to the large exchange with the Pacific. Currents are high, so it can be a bit technical, so plan accordingly. The channel between the bluff and the bird-refuge is full of life. Sunsets at the park are amazing. The new ranger is a little less hard-nosed than the former ranger, but quiet hours are still a bit restrictive. This is not the place for hosting a raging drunken bonfire. Availability runs out quickly, so make your reservations early, when they become available, because they get booked in a day. The hiker-biker-kayaker spots are always available, and are a good option, if you're willing to forego having a car.
