Cool off in the summer weather by taking a dip in Cranberry Lake. Just a short drive away, you can jump in from a cliff or wade in on the shore.
Cranberry Lake is located in the Anacortes Community Forest Lands, a 2,800-acre preserve within the city limits of Anacortes. You will find this lake after a short 1.5 mile round trip hike.
DIRECTIONS: From Swinomish Casino & Lodge, take Casino Drive to SR-20 West. Continue on SR-20 West to Anacortes. When you reach Anacortes, turn right on Commercial Avenue, and then left on 12th Street, following the signs to the San Juan Island ferries. After you start to parallel the water, turn left on Georgia Avenue (streets are alphabetical), and turn right at the Cranberry Lake sign. Follow this graveled road to reach the parking lot.
