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.
Location: East side of the southermost tip of Whidbey Island.
Hazards: Southern winds and strong current at times. 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 precipitiously 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. See also Karen Borell's history of the site.
