Guemes-Island is part of the San Juan Islands in Skagit County. The island is north of Anacortes, Washington and has a population of 563 except in the summer when the population spikes to over 1,200. Guemes Island is only accessible by a five minute ferry ride from Anacortes. The island community is rural with limited facilities. The Guemes Island Resort is a rustic resort on 20 acres and is surrounded by forest and it has been in operation since 1948. Next to Guemes Island Resort is Young County Park which provides a place for boat launching. Guemes Island has about a one mile stretch of beach that is open to the public. Anderson's General Store is the only store on the island, if they don't have it, you probably didn't need it anyway. Mount Guemes is the highest point on the island and is 700 feet. At the top, you will enjoy a beautiful panoramic view. Bicycling is a popular activity on the island, since the island is only about five miles long. The summer months provide ample opportunities for crabbing, sea kayaking, and fishing.
