Reservations & Cancellations

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.

Online Reservations


Campsite Reservation system closes October 15

With Fall upon us and fewer demands on our campgrounds, it is time for us to let the Reservation System hibernate for a few months! October 15 is the last day to make advance reservations for 2018. Reservations are not taken for stays beginning on or after November 1. We hope you'll visit, again, after March 4, to make your campsite reservations for 2019. Remember, reservations can only be made up to 90 days in advance of arrival.

Online camping reservations for individual campsites (single or multi-night stays; all depending on campsite availability) can be made a minimum of 5 days and a maximum of 90 days in advance of arrival. Reservations are accepted from the 1st Monday in March through October 15 (on the opening day ONLY, reservations will be accepted starting at 9 a.m. Pacific Time). After opening day, each day's allotment of campsites available for reservation refreshes at midnight Pacific Time. No reservations are taken for stays between November 1 and March 1 (nor are they needed!).

Fee Schedules


Campsite fees are published on the individual island pages, i.e. San Juan Island, Lopez Island, Shaw Island, on the left navigation bar of the webpage. Note the applicable dates of each schedule. Fees are also included in the online camping reservation system.

Reservation cancellations - READ CAREFULLY!


No reservation changes or partial cancellations are allowedyou will need to cancel your reservation (subject to our cancellation policy*) and create a new reservation for an available campsite (to change arrival date, campsite, or duration of stay). 
As summer reservations are difficult to get, you may want to reserve your new reservation, first, then cancel your existing reservation. If a new site is not available, you may find it advantageous to hold onto your original reservation and simply check out early; no refund will be given. Consider your options carefully!

*Campsite cancellations
made 30 or more days in advance of the first reserved night will result in a 25% cancellation fee for all reserved nights (25% of the paid campsite fees); 72 hours through 29 days, a 50% fee; less than 3 days is non-refundable. The eservation fee is non-refundable. No refunds issued at park.
