South Whidbey Island State Park is easy to find and get to. A short ferry ride gets you over to Whidbey. It's a great park for a day visit that would include a picnic. I love coming out here from Seattle.

South Whidbey State Park has plenty of wooded trails, beach access and natural beauty. If you have never seen a real, old-growth tree ... set a date and come explore this natural resource.

Having just moved here recently and a shutterbug, I've been trying to find more trails to explore. However, it's winter, the rainy season, and you have to take advantage of a sunny day! I went in the afternoon on a chilly winter day, sunny, and...More

Beautiful park. Nice day use area. The campground area has been closed indefinitely due to rot in the beautiful old growth timber and considered a hazard to camp in but, you can still hike into the area and do all of the trails.
