JOSEPH WHIDBEY STATE PARK
Joseph Whidbey State Park is a 206-acre day-use park with 3,100 feet of saltwater shoreline on the Strait of Juan de Fuca in northern Puget Sound. The scenery is beautiful, views are magnificent, wildlife is everywhere and the beach is one of the grandest on Whidbey Island. This forested park on Puget Sound provides magnificent views, natural beauty, and beach opportunities.
The park and other island features were named during the Vancouver Expedition of 1792. Master Joseph Whidbey circumnavigated the island, and Vancouver named it in his honor.
A Discover Pass is required for vehicle access to Washington state parks for day use. For more information about the Discover Pass and exemptions, please visit the Discover Pass web page
This is a day-use park, but one water trail campsite is available only to campers who arrive at the park by human-powered watercraft. The campsite is available on a first-come, first-served basis, and a primitive camping fee applies. There is one ADA accessible restroom.
