We support 7 State Parks on Whidbey Island
We work with State Park staff to identify
park needs and find ways we can help.
You decide how you would like to help &
choose the parks where you'd like to volunteer!

Fort Ebey State Park
Fort Ebey offers camping, hiking, and old gun batteries to explore with your flashlight! Bring a picnic and your kite.
The park and adjacent Kettles County Park offer an extensive mountain bike trail system.
You may also see surfers paddling out to catch a wave.
Fort Casey State Park
Fort Casey is full of history! Learn from a volunteer Battalion Guide about the restored WW ll big guns. Explore the gun batteries. Get great views from the top of the Admiralty Head Lighthouse. Set up your camp at the water's edge. Fly a kite, toss a Frisbee or throw a baseball on the grass- covered parade grounds.
Enjoy sweeping views of Puget Sound, the Olympic Peninsula,
Mount Rainier, the Cascades and
Mount Baker! stroll the beach and look for agates, seals and orcas. Climb the stairs and hike the magnificent bluff trail in Ebey's Landing National Historical Reserve.
Hike the Wilbert Trail through a quiet old-growth forest with huge evergreen trees. You must look UP to see how tall these majestic giants are. Invite your neighbors for a picnic in the park.
Located between Puget Sound and Crockett Lake, the spit is a great place to fish for salmon, hike, run, bike, look for birds and watch the ferry arrive from Port Townsend. Whidbey Audubon has named Crockett Lake as an important birding area.
Located at the southern tip of the Island you can hike the beach when the tide is low or hike the bluff trail anytime. Fish from shore, kayak to the park and stay overnight, or dive into the Sound and explore sea critters that live along the underwater reef wall that drops from
30 feet to 130 feet.
