03/11/2019: "New American Camp Visitor Center Planned"
The National Park Service improve the facilities at the American Camp visitor center site within San Juan Island National Historical Park.
The plan is to replace the 40 year-old "temporary" visitor center with a new facility that will highlight the rich cultural history of the area as well as the spectacular natural setting of American Camp.
In addition, the visitor center entrance road would be relocated just north of its existing intersection with Cattle Point Road. Park operational facilities, including administrative campsites, maintenance and resource management areas, would also be reconfigured.
Implementation of the selected action will begin this fall (2019) with replacement of the visitor center and realignment of the entrance road. The outdoor gathering space, forest picnic trail, and reconfiguration of the administrative area and campsites are not currently funded, but will be implemented as funding becomes available.
