“Drive down from American Camp to the southernmost point on San Juan Island. Spectacular vistas. ”
“The closest "special occasion" restaurant. The prime rib is their specialty. Madrona Bar and Grill is also on the property, when you want the great sunset view without making reservations. The menu is great, with lots of fresh seafood, fantastic fries, and many gluten free options. Both of these close in September for the season.”
