Lake Samish County Park Picnic Area Reviews & Ratings
It's a great place to swim and have a picnic. You can rent equipment for use on the lake. It's surrounded by trees and appers isolated although the freeway is only about 5 min away. The only downside is that during busy times you may not be able to enter the park due to limited parking.
Wonderful spots to swim as you follow the trail up the east side of the lake. Look for the hidden rope swing...
Small parking, but excellent place warm water on the lake. enjoyed alot with family especially kayaking was awesome and workers for rental place gave us excellent services. Thanks
Really nice picnic area, there were several tables and plenty of green space to set up a blanket for a lawn spread, plus a trail that leads to more private picnic tables. Get here early; the parking lot fills up quick.
Very pleasant, family oriented nice picnic and swimming area. Not much of a parking lot
