“Beautiful Views and interesting history.”
Reviewed June 2, 2012

We enjoyed a long hike around the Cattle Point, also dubbed American Camp. There are marked walking paths but I would also recommend taking some of the ones that have been trail blazed, they will take you along the shore line. Make sure to keep your eyes open for eagles and fox. It is worth spending the afternoon taking in the historical points as well as the photographic opportunities.

“Cattle Point Lighthouse...the view is WOW”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

This Lighthouse is next to the American Camp. You drive a long the road, and walk a short path through the meadow to get to the lighthouse. The Lighthouse itself, is nothing spectacular, and they are going to be fixing its foundation in the near future due to erosion. But the view is just awesome. We also braved the steep path to the rocks below...and were rewarded with tons of neat sea life to witness...including a starfish. Take your camera, it's beautiful there.

“Such a stunning landscape - unexpected sand dunes.”
Reviewed April 14, 2012

I loved exploring San Juan Island - I can see the south end of the island from my kitchen window but had never driven it before. Very impressed.
