Once you've visited the American Camp drive to the other side of the island and get the other part of the story. This is a great place to do some light hiking and learn some of the islands history.
Fun history here-have you ever heard of the Pig War? The US and Britain nearly went to war during our Civil War time frame. Learn all about it and enjoy beautiful views of the Puget Sound.
A great 2 mile flat hiking loop. Or challenge yourself by hiking up to Mt. Young for a gorgeous West side view of the islands.

State / Provincial Park
“Lime Kiln Point State Park is a 42-acre Washington state park on the western shore of the island. The park is one of the best places in the world to view wild orcas! We personally saw a pod travel the length of the park for 30 minutes breaching, playing, and traveling as a family.”
“Just go! Cannot say enough about this award winning restaurant. Every dish is simply amazing. Very romantic setting, yet family appropriate, too. You will love this special place!”
