Excerpt from Chart 18421
Depths in fathoms
The heavily forested shoreline is all owned by the University of Washington and is marked No Trespassing. There are no houses, but there is a UW pier and small shed in the very back of the bay. It is apparently connected to the road system on Shaw Island, since we have seen a pickup truck parked there infrequently.
internet available in Parks Bay when last we were there. This is not surprising, given the high ridge of land carving the bay out of San Juan Channel, and the unoccupied shoreline. On the forested shoreline you are almost guaranteed to see deer in the mornings and evenings. Parks Bay is a little bit of quiet, disconnected, peaceful idyllic heaven.
