What can I see and do at San Juan County Park?

The campsites and day use area are clustered around a pebble beach and rocky peninsula on the west side of San Juan Island. The Park looks out across the Strait of Haro, which is a prime whale watching and boating area. 

  • Spend a couple nights or a week at one of the waterfront sites. Spend your days enjoying everything the Island has to offer and come home to your own peaceful sanctuary in time to watch the sunset. 
  • Launch your kayak or other craft from the boat launch and enjoy some of the best cruising anywhere in the islands.
