The parks in the San Juan Islands are beautiful and offer a variety of opportunities for the camper, hiker, and other outdoor adventurers. Lopez Island has its fair share of public parks from which to choose.  Some Lopez Island parks are day use only, and some require particularly good mannered visitors,  but just like all the parks in the San Juan Islands each park on Lopez Island is unique and worth the visit.
