The property has one of the nicest stretches of beach on the island, with beautiful views. We stayed in one of the oceanfront cabins, and although adequate, I wouldn't call it "resort-like". Lots of dusty surfaces, dated and less-than-spotless furniture, dirty dishes in the kitchen, and plenty of evidence of poor maintenance and lazy housekeeping. Nothing was "gross", but I... More

My two friends and I spent two nights here on Friday Oct 10 and Saturday Oct 11, 2014. Due to long lines at the ferry and missing one, we did not arrive until well after dark on Friday. (Two hours prior was apparently not enough time to make the ferry). We called the resort ahead and they left the keys... More

Our first trip to the Island. We stayed at the resort because it was where the group we were traveling with chose to stay. We were in cabin #17, a very nice cabin with a bunk house that has two beds, which we did not need. It is not located on the beach, but a short walk away. The cabin... More

We chose to camp in our RV at West Beach because we could get an ocean view site. We had a pretty good ocean view, but some of the ocean view sites see mainly trees from their camp sites. Our site was in a grassy area, it was fairly level, there was shade but little privacy. There is a “community... More

This is my second time camping there. It's a quiet place with friendly staff. The neighborhood is peaceful and pretty. We also did some crabbing on the pier with some good catches. We also saw a seal swimming around the dock looking for food. The seal is very tame, and stays pretty close to let me take some good pictures.... More

We were placed in a campsite that had the unmistakable smell of sewage occasionally wafting in. Thinking the issue was just a poorly serviced porta-potty I went to the front desk to ask that they address the issue. There response was that no, the issue wasn't a porta-potty but rather that the campsite was adjacent to their sewage drainage system... More

Sorry for your experience at our resort. Unfortunately our front desk staff was new and misinformed - none of our campsites should be able to detect any smells, and the detectable smell during this guest's stay was the rare result of a failed seal on the system. The problem was immediately corrected with no further issues. Our closest campsite to... More

Visiting the san jaun islands from the East Coast. Stayed in a water view cabin. Really enjoyed the stay at this cabin. Cabin has rustic feel but was clean. Did not use the hot tub. It was nice that there was onsite café with espresso in the morning and beer at night. Fat Willy, a resident cat was quite the... More

We camped here in July 2014 and enjoyed the experience. It is not too crowded - maybe 30 basic campsites, RV sites, and tent cabins total. The bathrooms with coin showers were clean and functional. The proximity of the store and boat launch was a plus. As others have commented, the sunsets are gorgeous. Would return again, maybe for the... More

This place is the best campsite camping out there! I rearly stay at paid camp spots but this actually has changed my mind about this style of camping. Everyone was mellow and minding there own business. It was so beautiful and right on the water. We snorkeled in wetsuits and had the time of our life. Great for kids. The... More
