Welcome to Ebey's Landing National Historical Reserve!

You're invited to explore the history, culture, and natural resources that make this place a unique and fascinating part of the National Park System.


The Reserve is a unique conservation partnership, and nearly 85% of the land here is privately owned. Most of the historic homes are residences, and the fields are part of active working farms. You can help support this community by respecting private property.

Whidbey Island is located in a rainshadow between two mountain ranges: The Cascades and the Olympics, which makes the island a micro-climate. Always be prepared for any type of weather when visiting the Reserve. It might rain on the mainland and be sunny and calm on the island. Wind can also play a huge factor. Rule of thumb: bring a jacket, bring a hat and be sure you have plenty of water!
There are no fees to enter Ebey's Landing National Historical Reserve. However, there are three state parks within the Reserve, which do require a Discover Pass - $10 a day or $30 for an annual pass.


Entrance Fees:

Ebey's Landing National Historical Reserve partners with the Coupeville Chamber of Commerce as the official visitor center for the Reserve.
