IMPORTANT NOTICE: CAMPING IS FULL FOR THE WEEKEND OF AUGUST 1st!!! In accordance with San Juan County Order 2020-7 camping on Port property is available to overnight tie-down guests at a 50% capacity and subject to all State and County orders surrounding health precautions and social distancing measures. Any campers not in compliance will be trespassed.
Overnight tie-down guests are permitted to camp with their airplane at the airport. Some important points:
1-Camping is only permitted by fly-in guests tying down an airplane. The overnight tie-down fee is $10 per night or $45 per 4-weeks on the grass. (Rates were increased January 1, 2018 after being held steady for approximately 15 years)
2-Camping is only permitted in the North, grass tie-down area. There are 21 grass tie-down spots in this area, in rows of 7 (4+3). However, in accordance with San Juan County Order 2020-7, only 10 of these spaces are to be utilized. You may leave your tent up during the day at your own risk (and liability!).
3-There is a single shower and bathroom located on the North end of the middle row of hangars about 125 yards East of the tie-down area (not the ones in the picture above). It is accessible 24-7-365. Call (360-376-5285), email or stop by the airport managers office for the access code.
4-The shower / bathroom is free, but donations are encouraged to help us defray the cost of utilities, cleaning and supplies. There is a drop box in the shower.
5-Two regular bathrooms are available in the terminal 150 yards South of the tie-down area. The terminal is typically open from about 7:30 AM to about 5:30 PM. There is also a port-a-potty next to the fuel facility just South of the tie-down area.
6-No open fires permitted. The use of a portable “fire pit” is permitted, but all waste must be disposed of (not in our trash, please).
7-There is a propane grill by the electrical building due East of the grass tie-down area. The igniter is inoperative so bring a long lighter.
8-By policy, cars are not permitted to be parked on the ramp. Pick-up/Drop-off is fine if kept to a reasonably short period of time. A crew car is available.
