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.
Location: On the south-western shore of Vashon Island to Colvos Passage. The park is 4.5 miles north of the south end of Vashon Island. The campsite is the grassy area at the north side of the park.
Hazards: Fast currents in Colvos Passage. Squirrelly water at the southwestern end of Vashon, including tide rips and eddies.
Sanitation: A sanican is at the uphill edge of the car parking area
Fires: No fires anywhere of any sort.
Extras: The park is accessible to paddlers year round and reservations are required from May through October for camping (at which time reservations are made online at vashonadventures.com)
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.
