Sandy beaches, trails that meander through madrona groves and meadows, and a resident deer herd that mingles with campers make Jones Island one of the most popular San Juan Island destinations for kayakers. Other boaters enjoy it too, so much so that campsites are often scarce on summer weekends. This area can also be combined with a circumnavigation of Shaw Island (see the Shaw Island chapter) and a paddle through the Wasp Islands.
