Basic Information

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.

Ebey's Landing National Historical Reserve is on Whidbey Island in the Puget Sound. The island is easily accessible from the mainland by vehicle via Washington State Route 20 from Burlington and aboard the Washington State Ferries from either Mukilteo or Port Townsend.

Ebey's Landing National Historical Reserve

Fall and Winter often bring blustery and rainy weather, and while winter storm watching might be fun from the many beaches within the Reserve, it's important to watch for high waves and logs coming ashore. Always dress appropriately for the weather, which can change suddenly from warm to chilly very quickly.
