San Juan County Parks provides beautiful shoreline parks on the ferry-served San Juan Islands. Campgrounds offer waterfront campsites, beach access & scenic views and accommodate tents and smaller RV's (no hook-ups; check for restrictions) for a unique "island” experience. Restrooms, picnic tables, fire-rings, picnic shelters, boat ramps.
Odlin County Park is just one mile from the Lopez Island Ferry Landing, and three miles from Lopez Village. This 80-acre waterfront park features 8 campsites, a lovely sandy beach, a boat launch, hiking trails, a full-sized ball field and several picnic areas. Enjoy a hike or eat lunch in the picnic pavilion. There is also water, toilets, five mooring buoys and a day use dock.
Odlin Park is just off the ferry landing on Lopez Island. There's a long sandy beach where locals and tourists alike come to spend their days. As someone who often paddles around the islands I prefer hike-biker sites. Unfortunately, if you're coming from the water these wonderfully removed sites are a little bit of a trek. If you're arriving by foot or by bike then they are perfect! There are some RV/car sites right on the water that have very little privacy from one another as well as a few others up into the woods a little more.
One of the best parks for bike camping in the islands. Sites are spacious and offer wonderful views of the sound.
This quaint little county park is right off from the ferry landing. There are plenty of beach sites, a few are “walk-in” – which just means that you can’t park your car there. There are lots of forested sites which offer more privacy than the beach. The views of Shaw Island and the passage between are beautiful. Great swimming, paddling, and crabbing can be had here. Reservations are available 90 days prior and necessary July – August. We got lucky with a mid-week September arrival and got site #11, one of the best beach sites in the camp for 2 nights.
Boat launch, water, clean pit-toilets, great recycling and trash are all available here, but no showers or electric outlets. However, Lopez Villiage has some of the best showers which you can use for the suggested donation of $2. Go get an ice cream or latte while you’re there.
Cost: $25 - $30 /night
