Dungeness Spit Review
Curving 5½ miles into the Strait of Juan de Fuca, the longest natural sand spit in the United States is a wild, beautiful section of shoreline. More than 30,000 migratory waterfowl stop here each spring and fall, but you'll see plenty of birdlife any time of year. The entire spit is part of the Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge.
Dungeness Lighthouse. At the end of the Dungeness Spit is the towering white 1857 Dungeness Lighthouse; tours are available, though access is limited to those who can hike or kayak out 5 miles to the end of the spit. Guests also have the opportunity to serve as lighthouse keepers for a week at a time. An adjacent, 64-site camping area, on the bluff above the Strait of Juan de Fuca, is open February through September. Entrance 3 miles north of Hwy. 101 via Kitchen Dick Rd., 98382. 360/683–6638. www.newdungenesslighthouse.com.
