Possession Point marks a dividing line for those heading north in Puget Sound. Turn hard west for the Hood Canal, bear west up the side of Whidbey Island for Admiralty Inlet or go east for Saratoga Passage. This State Park property is also a great overnight destination for those on the populated eastern shores of mid-Puget Sound.
Thanks to Karen Borell for her research: Possession Point
Approach: Land directly in front of the house on sand and cobble. Old bulkheads line the shore. Carry boats around the small rusted gate and use the grassy area. The landing area is compact.
Location: East side of the southern tip of Whidbey Island.
Hazards: Southern winds and strong current at time. Busy boat traffic.
Sanitation: Chemical toilet
Overflow: On grass to south of campsite, check with park ranger.
Fires: No fires, stove only
Fees: $12/night for up to 8 in site
Special Considerations: There are private residences to the north of the campsite and a State Park ranger residence to the south. Please be considerate of all neighbors.
Natural History: The floor of Puget Sound drops precipitously just off the shore of the park. Divers enjoy exploring the underwater Possession Wall while fishers on boat and shore try their luck on the water’s surface.
