Reservations & Cancellations

Campsite reservations are now closed for the winter season for all of the San Juan County Parks campgrounds. This online reservations system will re-open for the 2018 camping season on Monday, March 5. Look for the orange button that says "MAKE A CAMPING RESERVATION" in the upper left corner of the Parks webpage. There are lots of sites available on a first-come, first-served basis through the winter.

Summer Reservations

While camping reservations are not required at any of the San Juan County Parks or Fairgrounds RV sites, reservations are strongly recommended during the summer, especially for weekends and any summer dates at San Juan County Park on San Juan Island. Any unreserved campsites are available on a first-come, first-served basis at the park (you must arrive at the park to see if a site is available); please register promptly upon selecting your campsite. County Fairgrounds R.V. sites are not available during County Fair week mid-August.
