Bring your Discovery Pass for free parking. The Park says it accommodates wheelchairs, but some of the paths are steep. We're not in perfect shape, so the path to the Lime Kilns themselves was steep in places, but we made it easily enough. It's quite narrow in a couple of spots, too. What we didn't know in advance was that... More

The service I received while attempting to get food for myself and my girlfriend was abysmal, it took them a half hour to make our food in a To go package,and we still had to wait in line for another half hour just to pay for it. Exemplary service is not in their motto or job descriptions.

This is a nice park for a picnic. This is a fee area, but I didn't see any enforcement. We had a Discovery Pass, so it didn't matter. The other public access areas along the coast are just as good.

Great place to stop and look for orcas, sea lions, eagles. We got lucky and saw a pod of orcas the day they arrived. We went back later in the week and only saw seals.

This is the spot to see whales and other wildlife if you're lucky enough to spend time on San Juan Island.

The views from Lime Kiln Point State Park are amazing. The weather was beautiful and it was just a great day to go for a hike or relax and enjoy the scenery. We took some wonderful pictures. This is a really nice place. I highly recommend.

This is a great spot for short or more extended hiking. During certain months, while watching would be great. Lots of history and education opportunities

It was a great spot but a little too crowded for our taste. The trails are easy and there are plenty of spots to sit at picnic tables or the rocks to look out for marine mammals swimming past.

The beautiful coastal views and the lighthouse are very easy to walk too. Many sit and wait to see the whales while enjoying the gorgeous views. There are restrooms and a dirt path ( not rocky ) with signs on how to get there. Short walk. Be sure to follow the trail to see the Lime Kiln ( path behind... More
