Grover and I took a bike ride to American Camp and decided to hike to Jakle’s Lagoon. Boy are we glad we did! Jakle’s Lagoon is located just south of the Fourth of July Beach on Cattle Point on San Juan Island. The lagoon is part of the San Juan Island National Historic Park. Presumably it is named after the the first Cattle Point Lighthouse caretaker George Jakle who was a soldier stationed at American Camp.

The trail begins in a cool, forested area that is about 1 mile. Grover loved the cool, shady hike after riding in the bike trailer catching sun rays. You can grab a nature map at the trailhead and it will give you information about the plants and trees.

Jakle’s Lagoon has big pieces of drift wood and lots of cool, marshy areas to explore. Grover loved tromping through and getting his paws wet! Grover and I also had fun skipping rocks and sitting peacefully by the water.

Driving or biking directions to Jakle’s Lagoon: From downtown Friday Harbor head west on Spring Street and turn left onto Mullis Road. This road eventually turns into Cattle Point Road. Follow Cattle Point Road past the entrance to American Camp. You will see Fourth of July Beach on your left then South Beach on your right. The turnoff to Jakle’s Lagoon is just after the South Beach turn off on your left hand side.

Happy traveling, exploring and enjoying the San Juan Islands!
