We went to a wedding here and it was gorgeous. Lots of walking, but very unique and historical. Well kept grounds and buildings too. I enjoyed myself but got cold, and tired of standing, but sure enjoyed ourselves.

Always love to walk the beach, check out the bunkers, and wow what a view of the Whidbey Island fighter jets! Great for walks with the dogs, a nice tennis court, great camp sites, and beauty of the Strait of Jaun de Fuca!

I'm a fan of the 80's movie, so this was lots of fun for me! Very well preserved and great place to take photos of places where the movie was filmed. Officers quarters have been restored and converted to nightly rentals.

Beach was pretty, quiet, not very many people. Water very cold. Super relaxing. Sweet little hands-on science center. Cool & spooky old ruins/barracks. What a great park for residents & visitors. We were very impressed. It's like stepping back in time. Very reasonably priced canteen...More

Sorry - I don't know their policy about cancellations because I live nearby. Contact them right away though, so someone else can take the spot. They are in high demand I hear.
