Exploring Keystone Spit

Welcome to Keystone Spit! During the last Ice Age, Vashon Glacier covered most of Puget Sound weighing down the land underneath. As the ice retreated, the land rebounded. The spit was still under water at this point but had risen enough that the tides move around Admiralty Bay in just the right way for sand and gravel to build up. Over time, more and more sand accumulated until what is now Crockett Lake was cut off from the bay as the bar spit was created. Today, enjoy a walk on the beach or launch your boat at the jetty. Note: A Discover Pass is required for vehicle entry into all Washington State Parks. Day passes are $10 and annual passes are $30. They can be purchased in the park at the park office or self service kiosks. They can also be purchased in advanced at https://www.discoverpass.wa.gov/. Note: All 10 state parks on Whidbey and Camano Islands have adventures!
