Whidbey is the largest island in Washington State and one of the longest in the country. It lies about 30 miles north of Seattle in Puget Sound, is some 35 miles long and rich in farmlands, coastal bluffs, coves, beaches and forests. Camp Casey over looks the beautiful Admiralty Inlet on Puget Sound. Owned/operated by Seattle Pacific University, the camp is located in the center of the Island, directly west of historic Coupeville.
Fort Casey State Park and the beautiful Admiralty Head Lighthouse are walking distance from where we are staying! If you prefer parking within the state park: an automated pay station for visitors to purchase a one-day or annual Discover Pass. For more info - http://parks.state.wa.us/505/Fort-Casey
A short drive away is Ebey's Landing National Historical Reserve, rich with local history. https://www.nps.gov/ebla/faqs.htm
On the east side of the island is Coupeville, a quaint and historic town. Some might want to paint the pier, Penn Cove, the town itself or along Madrona Way where the rustic Captain Whidbey Inn is. Grab a bite to eat - there are a few nice restaurants in town! There is a Red Apple grocery store just west of highway 20 on S. Main Street.
Lodging is at the Bachelor Officers’ Quarters (BOQ) on the north side of the conference center grounds. There is parking for guests behind the BOQ. Its the long building facing the pool and between two Victorian houses.
