Review Summary



Bottom Line

The Lakedale Resort is not your grandfather's campground. In addition to a lakefront location with picnic spots, this 82-acre property offers everything from an airstream trailer to canvas cabins. The lodge rooms definitely have the most conveniences -- bathrooms with Molton Brown toiletries, TVs (albeit tube-style ones), and patios -- but they are also the least outdoorsy. The Canvas Cabins are no-frills -- but in a good way -- sporting charming rustic decor and comfy beds. The property is best suited for visitors looking for an upscale camping experience, although poor cell phone reception may be a nuisance for some.

A quiet, serene location in Friday Harbor on San Juan Island

Map of Lakedale Resort at Three Lakes

The Lakedale Resort at Three Lakes is slightly inland on San Juan Island. It's only about a ten-minute drive from the ferry, but the quiet environment makes it feel much farther away than that. It goes without saying that a car will be needed if you plan on exploring the island outside the resort.

Friday Harbor is a small, compact town located on the eastern side of San Juan Island. Its kid-friendly attractions and dozens of outdoor activities attract families and active travelers alike year-round. Summer months are especially popular, when you'll likely find long lines for the ferry. There's a wide array of great boutiques, quite a few solid restaurants serving international cuisine, a handful of interesting art galleries, and several unique museums.

Pretty beaches, beautiful trails, gorgeous whale-watching tours, and wild state parks make the San Juan Islands one of the best destinations in the region for the outdoorsy tourist -- but the myriad of other "city" activities available are sure to please the urban travelers too.
