Aug 25, 2009 - Back to Jarrell Cove Marine State Park

Jarrell Cove SP August 23-25, 2009 We camped here with friends Paul & Sue just over a month ago. That time they cruised up in their sailboat. This time they pulled their tent-trailer. Sunday night there were a couple of other camp sites occupied. Monday night only one other site, other than our two, was occupied. Plus, the seventy-degree day was absolutely perfect. On Monday, Paul and I bicycled around to the Jarrell Cover Marina. Near the marina I found an Italian Garden in the woods. It had lots of lavender plants in there. It was a...

Jul 22, 2009 - Jarrell Cove SP (WA)

Jarrell Cove SP Washington July 20-22, 2009 This small state park is only about twenty miles from our house—as the proverbial crow flies. It is about thirty-five miles via roadways. The park has about 3500’ of saltwater shoreline, with twenty-five campsites. Three of them are reservable. The main camping area in the center of the park is a large, open meadow with very few well-defined campsites. The park is on the north shore of Harstine Island. Because of the remoteness of the island by road, boaters are the main visitors here. It’s...
