Dates: July 22 – 24, 2011
Location: Spencer Spit State Park, Lopez Island
Join SEAPAX at our Annual campout, July 22 – July 24, at Spencer Spit State Park on Lopez Island in the beautiful San Juan Islands. Lopez Island is a 45-minute ferry ride from the Anacortes Ferry Terminal.
Spencer Spit State Park is a 138-acre marine and camping park situated on Lopez Island in the Strait of Juan de Fuca. The park is named for the lagoon-enclosing sand spit on which it rests. As Native American tribes migrated up and down the coast, they stopped at Spencer Spit to clam, crab and fish before moving on. Native American activity continued until 1946. Spencer Spit was homesteaded in the late 1800s by a family named Troxell. It was eventually sold to the Spencers who lived on the property for 50 years. Washington State Parks bought the property in 1967.
The campsite SEAPAX has reserved (G2 group campsite) is a walk-in only area, which means that it is tent camping only (no RVs).
