Spencer Spit State Park

Spencer Spit State Park is a 138-acre marine and camping park situated on Lopez Island in the Strait of Juan de Fuca. The park is named for the lagoon-enclosing sand spit on which it rests. The park has a reputation for excellent crabbing, clamming, and car-top boating. This is one of the few state parks in the San Juan Islands that is accessible by automobile. A sand spit encloses a salt chuck lagoon.
