One of my family and friends' favorite parks, this is a total gem for its different beach layout. It's first, a county park, and therefore free parking/no admission fee, for visitors who just want a lovely beach experience but maybe have money constraints. Second, it's an estuary off the Stilly and Skagit rivers, with very shallow tidelands so it's perfect for small children. Third, this beach is actually sandy so it's easy to enjoy low tides with your favorite digging and creating tools: just remember to fill in every hole that is dug (to protect the critter homes), and pack every piece of garbage ( diapers/ lunch sacks/juice boxes etc. out with you). When the sun gets to be too much ( or gone!), take yourselves up along the dike trail; benches await to sit and contemplate the beautiful. Continue towards the wooded hillside-follow its established, easy walk thru cool shadowed woodland then cut back left to walk thru the marshland ( there's also a special Hobbit Trail-they both lead back to the parking areas). I was there today for a 5th grade class excursion: all the kids had a great time! We also saw young folks riding their skimmer boards across a shallow small pond, and toddlers walking in the waters with their parents. Get outdoors and enjoy this jewel!

This quite unpopulated beach is one of my favorites... a short drive from Terry's corner, you can spend all day here! Plenty of parking and at high tide a wonderful beach to launch your kayaks!

Spent hours here, walking trails, having lunch and watching birds. The trails are level and in good conditions even with all the rain we have gotten this winter. The Hobbit trail was interesting. Canopy with lots of moss. Exposed roots, a good way to burn a couple hours after lunch.
The beach requires a little traversing through years of driftwood but that also makes for a shelter build, fun project for the kids. Bring a lunch, wonderful place for a picnic. This is really the only sandy beach on the island, in summer the water is still chilly but manageable.

Such a exquisite place !! Marvelous views of salt-water, mountains, etc. And then also a walk along a dyke which makes the view even better. And then there is a walk back through the salt water marsh. Great for bird-watching. In the summer there is swimming on the sandy beach with huge amount of huge logs !! On the windy day that I was there, two para-sailing guys were there in November !! And it is FREE !!
