WASHINGTON PARK NOTIFICATION
Greetings Washington Park Campers.
The City of Anacortes greatly appreciates your choice of camping with us. Many of you are aware that we have been upgrading our campground restroom facilities over the last year. Because we have worked hard to keep costs down, and to do the job the right way, the work remains in progress. In preparation for the Victoria Day weekend, we will be able to open the Women’s side. While we have work left to do, that portion of the facility will be functional. The Men’s side will have to remain closed. We do have several Port-O-Pottees on site to help mitigate the situation. We realize this is not ideal, but it is our goal to ultimately provide the best facilities possible. We are hopeful that we will be cutting the ribbon on a completed upgrade for the entire facility in June. Our other restroom facilities at the entrance of the Loop Road remain open and fully functional
If you have any questions, please contact our Washington Park staff at 360.661.3463.
Thank you again for your patience and understanding.
Washington Park Manager, Bob Vaux
