Fall hours for San Juan Island National Historical Park's visitor centers are in effect September 30 to December 10, 2017.
English Camp Visitor Center will be closed until the summer of 2018.
American Camp Visitor Center will be open from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, Wednesday through Sunday and closed on Monday and Tuesday through December 10. The visitor center will be closed from December 11 to March 7, 2017 when it will reopen with the same operating hours as the fall.
All grounds including trails, beaches, and day-use facilities will remain open to the public from dawn until 11 pm.
The change in hours for visitor center operations reflects the current and forecasted financial landscape for the park. These decisions will allow staff to be most effective in allocating resources to reach the greatest amount of park visitors throughout the year. Due to historically sharp decline to few visitors in the winter months, the park finds it most sensible to focus staff availability to periods of higher visitation. The staff is resolved in providing sound stewardship of the finances it is given and in serving the public.
