We hope this information will be useful in planning your visit. We are continually working to upgrade facilities for accessibility and to improve park access for all visitors. While not all facilities are fully accessible, park staff is happy to assist any visitor with special needs.
The American Camp Visitor Center has reserved parking and is accessible by ramp. The restrooms, exhibit area, bookstore, information desk, and drinking fountain are fully wheelchair-accessible. Rangers are on duty to answer questions and assist visitors.
San Juan Island National Historical Park has four picnic areas. Three at American Camp and one at English Camp. All four picnic areas are accessible by car.
While no trail at American Camp meets all ADA standards for trails, there are some trails that most visitors in wheelchairs find very easy to navigate. Those trails include the trail from the visitor center to the redoubt and the some of the trails that start at the Jakle's Lagoon parking lot. Please contact the American Camp visitor center for specific information.
Park staff gladly offers programs for anyone with special needs. If you would like to schedule a program in advance please call the American Camp visitor center at (360) 378-2240 ext. 2228.
While not offered in the park, the Access Pass is a free lifetime entrance permit to all federal parks, monuments, and recreation areas for U.S. citizens or permanent residents who have a permanent disability.
