From the top you have full view of the mountains, water, marina's as far as your eyes can see it is beautiful. Beautiful park and viewing area. So happy we were able to go there.

Favorite place for visitors, guests and locals. Steep twisty ride up to the cliff. Wonderful views of Mt Baker, the fuel tankers if they are in port, marinas, Fildalgo Bay and town of Anacortes. Beautiful on a sunny day

Great view of the marina and part of the city of Anacortes. You can even see part of the Rosario Strait on the other side of Fidalgo Island. It's only a short drive up to the top and it's well worth it.

Short drive from downtown Anacortes. Definitely worth the jaunt! 360 degree view of city, bay, and Cascades is a perfect spot for some amazing photos. (Even got some shots of deer as we left the park.) Lots of rocks for climbing (even saw a creative young girl using a rock as a "slide".)

This is a nice place to view the Anacortes port and look for whales. My husband spotted two orcas! Rocky hillside with relatively easy climbing.

This point offers wonderful views of the bays, city, and marinas. Take a camera. This view of the oil terminals and refineries is quite interesting and the gazillion dollar boats in the marina is awe inspiring.

We were on our boat in Cap Sante Marina and needed to stretch our legs and take the dogs for a walk. We walked to the north end of the marina and entered the park. The initial walk to the observation point is flat and paved. There are many interesting trees and plants plus a view of the harbor to... More

This park is definitely worth the few minutes it takes to drive. The road up to the park has some beautiful homes. The views from the park are magnificent. When we were there the skies were so clear we could see Mt Baker and the Cascades to the east and the Olympics to the west. Don't miss this viewpoint.

Husband, son, and I came to the the waterfront festival in Anacortes. We had a nice stroll through the festival and on the docks appreciating the yachts. We commented on how we should come here more often. Walking was free. We chose not to buy anything. We found a parking spot close. Son used the port-a-potty and survived.

From Cap Sante you get a great view of Anacortes and the surrounding waters and islands. Definitely worth the few minutes it takes to drive there.
