I appreciate the volunteers all across America who help keep these small, quaint lighthouses open to the public and who share the history so that it doesn't get lost to time. Captain Joe is one such individual. A retired Coastie, he patiently take the time...More

This area has nice coastline views and more enjoyable during the current summer weather. Take the time to stroll the coastline, skip some rocks, and enjoy the birds and sea life. The history of the area is nice to learn as well.

Unique in that such a small park has a lighthouse. The shore is natural in that driftwood has not been moved away. You have to climb over logs to get to the water. The pebbles are lovely, each unique in different colors. I would recommend...More

Remote point. Short walk from parking lot. A few mowed paths near the lighthouse building wind around the brush and offer bench seating in a few select viewing spots. Narrow pebble beach with large driftwood trees. Very windy area overlooking the water.

What a hidden gem! Captain Joe, the retired Coast Guard icebreaker captain, who gives the lighthouse tours clearly is passionate about sharing maritime history. He's a delight!

This light house is not at all remote. Easy to get through from town. Lots of driftwood. We just went this week and being winter, it was blowing and cold. This was a nice thing. Just be prepared and bundle up. There is handicapped parking...More

Another short stop in Vashon on our day outing which included a ferry ride and a stop at the Vashon bicycle tree. It has a great view across the water but can be pretty cold on cooler rainy days. It's quaint and was worth the...More

I've lived on Vashon for 3 years now and this by far my dog's favorite place to walk. It can be a busy, touristed park, but it's big enough with lots of beach that we can have a good off leash walk. The greatest thing...More

It's my dog's favorite park on the island, and we are almost always off leash.

From the Fauntleroy Ferry (Seattle) it's about 20 or 30 minutes. Closer to 20, if I remember correctly. Depends a bit on how busy the Farmer's market is.
