The American Camp Visitor Center opened in late June 2022. It examines our island's ongoing Coast Salish heritage and history, its ecology, The Pig War, and how it impacted the lives of many types of people from diverse backgrounds.

American Camp and English Camp Visitor Centers have closed for the year. We will reopen in the spring of 2023. In the meantime, our grounds and outdoor exhibit areas are open for free public access at all times.
