Lisabeula

Enjoy the sunsets over Colvos Passage from this 5.5 acre park. Lisabuela is a well-located stopover for your transition between South and Mid-Sound. Knowledgeable boaters go from south to north in Colvos Passage, using the predominately northward flow to help their passage.

Special Considerations: Site receives heavy day use and occasional loud night parties. The neighbors and park district are very interested in keeping the nights quiet for all.

Natural History: The area surrounding the park is believed to have been named by Postmaster Brink for his two daughters, Eliza and Buelah, although another account assigns these names to the two young women working in the office to which John Brink applied for a post office permit.
