By order of the San Juan County Council and in the best interest of the public and our staff, all four County Parks are closed to camping until May 30, 2020. This action was taken on Monday, March 23, in an effort to flatten the spread of COVID-19.
Camping reservations for arrival between now and May 30 at any of the four San Juan County campgrounds will be cancelled with full refunds given. Please have patience with us, as we have many reservations to work though! No new reservations will be accepted until further notice.
At the present time, Day Parks and day use are still open, though we ask all visitors to please follow CDC guidelines for 'social distancing'. Some restroom facilities may be closed and there will be no drinking water available in any of the parks. Visitors are encouraged to bring TP and hand sanitizer, as some of our supplies have been pilfered.
For mainland folks contemplating a visit to the San Juans during this pandemic, including day trips, please do not! This is not the time to risk further spread of this disease. The health and safety of our island communities is our highest priority. The request is based on San Juan County Health officials' recommendations and Washington State Governor Jay Inslee's statewide order for everyone to stay home for two weeks beginning March 25.
We appreciate your understanding and efforts to keep our communities safe from the spread of this viral infection.
Camping reservations are strongly recommended during summer at any of the San Juan County Parks or Fairgrounds RV sites. Any unreserved campsites are available on a first-come, first-served basis (you must arrive at the park to see if a site is available); please register promptly upon selecting your campsite. County Fairgrounds R.V. sites are not available during County Fair week mid-August.
This online reservation system will re-open for the 2020 season on Monday, March 2 at 9:00AM PST. Look for the orange button that says, "MAKE A CAMPING RESERVATION" in the upper left corner of the Parks webpage. Get more information on our Reservations & Cancellations page.
Fees for extra people and vehicles apply (listed in fee tables for each park and paid in the park). Please ensure that you know what our fees are before you make your plans. You may want to leave that extra car behind or reserve a 2nd campsite.
Camping in San Juan County is only allowed in approved campgrounds. There is no camping in County Day Parks or on Land Bank property.
During winter and spring, some campsites may be closed by park staff, due to wetness or other reasons. We wish to preserve the quality of all campsites and we want you to have a pleasant experience. Sites will reopen when conditions allow.
