First opened in 1938 with four cabins, this family-friendly outpost on the water of Orcas Island has grown over the years to include beachfront, ocean view, and garden cottages (all with full kitchens), as well as canvas tents and RV sites. Kids will love the summer activities each day, including scavenger hunts, fishing derbies, and face-painting. The resort also rents motorboats, kayaks, and fishing gear.

The grounds are beautiful with deer walking through. Many amenities for those staying in the cabins. However, there is no dump station for RV'ers. With the minimum stay being 2 days, we found this an inconvenience.
West Beach Resort is a great spot to stop and relax. Have a beer (or two)and watch the sun set. Great people. General store. Restrooms. Showers and laundry. Cute cabins. Buoys to tie off and spend the night.
