The Most Remote State Park In Washington Is Also The Most Peaceful

If you’ve ever visited the San Juan Islands, you’re probably familiar with names like Lopez Island, Orcas Island, and San Juan Island’s most popular town, Friday Harbor. But did you know there are actually a whopping 172 named islands and reefs in San Juan County?

Most of the 172 islands don’t have ferry service, and many are completely unpopulated. This is where you’ll find some of the most rugged territory in the northwest, including the beautiful but secluded James Island. Visiting this enchanting spot will allow you to completely unplug (mainly because there’s no WiFi or cell service).

Have you ever visited any of the lesser-known islands of San Juan County?
