Orcas Island Fly-In

August 5-7th 2022.   The local EAA folks will be having a scaled down version of a fly-in this year.   The local fire department will have a pancake breakfast on Saturday morning only.  They will NOT have a BBQ at the hangar next to the camping this year.  We do have a propane bbq grill near by and you are welcome to use.  No food shack either.  Again, it is a scaled down version. 

At one point in 2014,  we had 122 or 153 airplanes on the ground, but the EAA folks were too busy to keep count all day. Here’s a panoramic from Saturday, August 2nd, 2014 and two guests that should probably be together in a children’s movie.

The Fly-In is held every year on the first FULL weekend in August at the Eastsound Airport.  Guests arriving by airplane are welcome to camp ‘under the wing’ in our grass tie-down area.  We have a showers and toilets nearby.  If you would like a more refined stay, our quaint village is within walking distance and has many fine dining and lodging establishments.
