Comments Off on San Juan Campout at Spencer Spit State Park, August 11-13

Spencer Spit State Park, on Lopez Island, is a 138-acre marine and camping park.  The park is named for the lagoon-enclosing sand spit on which it rests.  There are many sheltered and unsheltered picnic tables, and two miles of hiking trails.  The park has a reputation for excellent crabbing, clamming and “car-top boating.”  This is one of the few state parks in the San Juan Islands that is accessible by automobile.
