Parks and Fair News

SAN JUAN COUNTY, WA.  January 11, 2024 - San Juan County Parks, Recreation, and Fair Department is pleased to announce the Resident Reservation program will now be offered through the department’s reservation website.

On Wednesday, February 28, at 6:00 am through Tuesday, March 5 at 4:00 pm, reservations will be available online to San Juan County residents. This is a one-week phase only, prior to our reservation website opening to the public on Wednesday, March 6 at 9:00 am.

This program allows San Juan County residents to reserve individual campsite early in order to camp with their family/friends together within a site.  Non-resident friends who would like to camp in their own site on the same dates can reserve beginning March 6 at 9:00 am.   Past limitations on the number of campgrounds, campsites and dates for the resident reservation program no longer apply.

Please go to our reservation system to make your reservations.  If a technological issue occurs during the online process, you can reach out to San Juan County Parks, Recreation & Fair Department administrative staff for assistance at parks@sanjuancountywa.gov.  Please email a detailed note.

To request and secure your reservation online, please:

  1. Go to https://www.sanjuancountywa.gov
  2. Choose the Parks, Recreation & Fair link.
  3. Choose the Camping link.
  4. Choose your desired San Juan County Park or Fairgrounds location.
  5. Submit check-in and check-out dates and your available campsite selection to compete one camping reservation.
  6. Follow all additional instructions.
  7. Submit full payment. Residents must have a San Juan County billing zip code.
  8. Should you desire another reservation, begin the process again.

Note:  Once you choose a campsite online, it is still available for others to reserve until you complete your payment process and submit.  You will know your reservation is secured if you receive a confirmation receipt.

Please be prepared when camping through this local benefit program to show your local identification at the campground if asked by San Juan County staff.

If you have a local group of 9 or more people, we ask that you reserve group campsites instead.  Group camping opened on January 5, 2024.   Please email parks@sanjuancountywa.gov to receive group camping information and forms. Group camping allows you to gather for all activities and helps us manage our Parks for the good of all campers.
