  • I'd love to camp there some time. Need reservations well in advance I think. Boating, beach kayaking, camping, picnicking and very nice views of the San Juan Islands. Located on a scenic highway.  more »
  • Easy walk through the woods to a beach that offered a variety for all ages. Easy to find a secluded location too.  more »
  • We hiked to Fragrance Lake. The facilities are nice. I recommend going early, as parking was full by the time we returned from our hike. The hike tip fragrance lake was beautiful. I highly recommend it. The switchbacks get a little monotonous, but you can't beat the walk around the lake at the end!
  • I luv,luv this quaint little park. First off you must park up high in a lot...then you get to hike down a small mountain side into an area where a small part of the Pacific waters come in to form a half moon bay. You can walk the shore or swim even boat around the cove. It is one of Washington's best places to take sunset pics as well. It is very relaxing and usually a respected place.
