Parks, Recreation and Fair

Welcome to San Juan County Parks

We are located in a beautiful maritime archipelago of 743 islands (428 at high tide!) in the northwest corner of Washington State. Of these, 60 islands are inhabited and four (Lopez, Shaw, Orcas, and San Juan) are served by Washington State Ferries, sailing from Anacortes, Washington.

All of the ferry-served islands have shoreline County day parks and/or campgrounds maintained by the San Juan County Parks, Recreation, & Fair Department.
