We just stopped in for a quick visit. The beach is quite a ways below the parking area, so be prepared for a good hike back up. But it's a lovely place, and quite worth if to walk along at water level. Very peaceful (this...More

Breath taking views. The park staff are wonderful. They offer sea kayaking. I took the sunset tour. Dan and Lucka were great and extremely kind.

Even in July, this park had so few people in it which made watching the wildlife even more special. Take a picnic and enjoy the sunshine and the quiet.

The spit is just great. If you rent kayaks in the morning you can catch a lot of wildlife in the water. The walks around the beach are wonderful. I really like this place -- just got to deal with the ferries (argh).

We walked to this park on our last day on Lopez Island, and was so glad that we did! The spit is a marshy, sandy triangle that comes remarkably close to Frosty Island. Birds abound, and the spit is popular for crabbing and digging clams,...More
