James Island

James Island Professional Review and Guide

"Rugged James Island State Park has plenty of trails and enough secluded coves to keep you busy for more than an overnight stay. Camping includes a Cascadia Marine Trail site along with general public camping facilities.

For variety coming and going, there are two ways to get there from Lopez Island. And if you feel up to it, you can make the exposed Rosario Strait crossing from Fidalgo Head to James Island and avoid San Juan Island ferry hassles. This trip could be combined with one to Obstruction Pass (see the Obstruction Pass chapter) and Doe Bay or perhaps with a circumnavigation of Blakely Island."
