LISTING FOR INFORMATION ONLY - NOT AVAILABLE FOR RESERVATION This is a mooring buoy owned and operated by Washington State Parks. More info at https://www.parks.wa.gov/488/Clark-Island or https://www.parks.wa.gov/648/Moorage. Actual moorage condition may differ from this listing. Midway between Orcas and Lummi islands, this long stretch of land is the perfect napping, camping or relaxation spot after a big day of boating or paddling. First-come, first-served campsites sit on the east side's pea gravel strand. A short walk to the island's west side leads to a sandy beach bookended by large rocks. Sunsets here are spectacular, even on partly cloudy evenings, and watching the sunrise from your tent on the beach cannot be beat. Once you've had a restorative visit, whether for an afternoon or a night, you'll be reinvigorated and ready to sail or paddle forward on your San Juan island adventure. PARK FEATURES Accessible only by boat, Clark Island Marine State Park is a 55-acre marine camping and moorage park with 11,292 feet of saltwater shoreline on the Strait of Georgia. Boaters anchoring offshore or using the park moorage buoys should be aware of the strong currents on the west side of the island. The east side moorage area is subject to large waves created by passing commercial shipping in Rosario Strait. Bug repellent is recommended into September, particularly for those using the more shaded camp spots. Cellular phone service is often available here, as Clark Island is close to a cell tower on Orcas. BOATING FEATURES Located in San Juan County on Puget Sound, Clark Island features nine moorage buoys, six on the east side of the island, three on the west side. No vessels over 45 feet long permitted on buoys. Moorage fees are charged year-round from 1:00 PM to 8:00 AM on a first come, first served basis. All boaters must self-register and pay required fees upon arrival. Boaters must also pay for boats rafted to another boat. Boaters need to obey rafting limits posted on mooring buoys. There is no garbage service at any of the state parks marine parks. Park visitors need to pack out what they pack in. Additional information can be found in the Boating Program.
