The County shares news about the opening of County Park camping reservations for 2023 for full-time San Juan Islands residents.
San Juan County’s Parks, Recreation, and Fair Department is offering advanced camping reservations for San Juan County year-round residents beginning Wednesday, Jan. 25 at 6 a.m. through Wednesday, Feb. 8 at 4 p.m. This two-week window is your chance to reserve private, individual campsites early. Choose from San Juan, Odlin or Shaw County Parks or the San Juan County Fairgrounds.
Proof of residency is required prior to receiving the resident reservation packet. Email your name, along with local resident and mailing addresses, to firstname.lastname@example.org to begin the process. Once you are on our mailing list, you will receive the instructions, forms, fee schedules, and park maps. There is a limit of two sites per household, per camping stay, with a maximum of two different camping stays.
For the Jan. 25 opening day, email requests are accepted starting no earlier than 6 a.m. via email to email@example.com only. We receive 95 percent of all requests within the first hour. Hard copy forms may be placed in a drop box outside the Parks & Fair Administrative office at 849A Argyle Ave. After 1 p.m. on opening day, reservations can also be made by phone by calling 360–378-8420. Resident reservations are not available online, but we request online payment. To secure reservations, form and payment must be provided before 4 p.m. on the same date.
Individual campsites can be reserved for local groups of eight or less. If you have a local group of nine or more people, we ask that you reserve group campsites instead. Call or email the department today to receive group camping information and forms. Group camping allows you to gather for all activities and helps us manage our parks for the good of all campers.
