South Whidbey Campground Phase 1

Category Overview

Local Parks grants help protect these symbols of vibrant communities, providing places for families to gather and play and promoting a healthy and active lifestyle in an era when people spend increasing amounts of their time inside. The WWRP is the largest source of local parks funding in Washington, helping communities fund the acquisition, development, and renovation of vital recreation areas and green spaces.

Project Highlights

The South Whidbey Parks and Recreation District will use this grant to acquire 30 acres and develop phase 1 of a new campground on property immediately adjacent to the district’s Community Park. Phase 1 of development includes constructing the first camping loop with 10 campsites, including two fully accessible campsites and 3 group campsites. The entry road is also included. The primary recreational opportunity provided through this project is overnight outdoor recreation.
