County Day Parks


County Parks Closed to Camping

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.



Come enjoy our islands and visit any of our seventeen parks located on San Juan, Lopez, Orcas and Shaw Island. Camp in one of our four overnight park accommodations on San Juan, Lopez or Shaw Island.

Please respect private property that borders Park or Land Bank property; obey property boundary signs. Keep dogs leashed and, don't let them wander onto private property.

There is no camping allowed at County Day Parks or on Land Bank property. Day parks are available for daytime activities only
visitors should exit the park prior to darkness. Fires or open flames are not allowed in County Day Parks.
