Exploring South Whidbey State Park

Welcome to South Whidbey State Park! South Whidbey helps you step back in time in a different way than several of the other state parks on the island. South Whidbey is home to one of the last remnants of old growth forest left on Whidbey Island. Old growth forests are ones little touched by humans and the forest's natural cycle of life occurs. You'll find majestic giants, like Douglas Fir, Western Red Cedar, and Western Hemlock standing tall. You'll also see ones that have fallen and are helping to bring new life to the forest as nurse logs. Old growth forests have a great diversity of both plant and animal life. Challenge yourself to identify 10 plants and animals. 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/.
