We were here in September and the leaves were changing, so it was a really pretty drive to get there. The weather was chilly, but not too cold and the sun and drizzly rain took turns while we hiked along the shoreline path for a couple of hours. The scenery is beautiful, the paths clearly marked, the kiln and lighthouse... More

You should pack a picnic and head out to this park to watch for whales and explore the lighthouse. There are good trails that are easy to navigate.

I was here in October and saw 2 different groups of orcas, a pair of bald eagles and seals. The Orcas were beautiful and came close enough to the viewpoint to hear them breathe. It was worth the long wait in cold weather to see them.

Lime Kiln State Park is another small gem on San Juan Island and the one place where you can often see the local Orcas without disturbing them by being in a boat....

We came here as part of a tour of the island in December. It was most beautiful then. In the summer it must be out of this world. The obvious history, the stamped kiln brick pathways, the hotels, the harbour.... Wow!

We actually had a whale watch tour the day before we visited the park, but heard that there were several Orca sightings from visitors at the park. The transient pod was in the area and we were lucky to see two Momma's and their 3 calves. So we couldn't get enough and came to see more whales from the park.... More

Lovely site to easily walk to. Amazing views of the Sound and passing tanker ships. Perfect place to snap a picture of the lighthouse with a loved one. I imagine this would be the place to be for the sunset.

What a wonderful little State Park. Perfect for lunch, little hikes and whale watching. We were there in November so it was cold and windy but still an amazing view of Victoria and Cordova Bay. Highly recommend whether you spend 5 minutes or 5 hours!
