San Juan Island Camping – Adventures in the Great Outdoors!
If camping is roughing it…then Lakedale is camping minus the rough. One of the premier places to camp in Washington, Lakedale offers the best of camping on San Juan Island with all the benefits of a resort.
Explore our 82 acres of forest, meadows, and lakes, and then enjoy one or two or six of our many activities (think tie-dye, giant chess, fishing, bocce, swimming, stand up paddleboards and more). End the day by gazing at the stars from your campfire while roasting marshmallows, and take a deep breath…you’ve found your outdoors.
With 30 campsites and many campsite options, we’ve got your camping adventure covered. Reservations in our glamp-ground are typically available Memorial Day-Labor Day, but we may open earlier or stay open later (depending on the weather). We’re also a pet-friendly campground.

Our Classic Campsites accommodate one tent, four people, and one vehicle. Each of our San Juan Island campsites features a fire pit and picnic table.
Our Family Campsites are perfect for guests with large tents or multiple small tents. These sites accommodate eight people and two vehicles. Each campsite features a fire pit and picnic table.
Our General Store is open on weekends from May through September. Stocked with apparel and unique souvenir items, we offer piping hot espresso drinks, freshly made pizza, pancakes, sandwiches, salads, S’mores kits, and other treats. Wine, beer, groceries, ice cream, candy, kid’s toys, camping and fishing gear, bait, ice, and wood make this a complete country store experience.
Our bathhouse contains flush toilets, sinks, and free showers.
We’re conveniently located 5 miles north of the ferry landing in Friday Harbor, which makes Lakedale an easily accessible option for folks who want to go camping close to Seattle.
