Spencer Spit State Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Beach parks are a rarity on the rocky coast of Washington, especially in the “banana belt” San Juan Islands. This is an exceptionally nice one. The 138-acre marine and camping park has 7,840 feet of saltwater shoreline on Lopez Sound. The park’s main feature is a 0.25-mile-long sand spit that contains a saltwater lagoon.
The park also contains a midden—the archaeological remains of an early Coast Salish campsite. The area is frequented by migratory birds, great blue herons, geese, and kingfishers. There are plenty of rabbits, deer, and raccoons."
