Who are these FOLKS …

Friends of Lime Kiln Society, aka FOLKS, was formed in 2011.  FOLKS  is a volunteer group of Islanders dedicated to providing a unique experience for Park visitors through support & development of educational programs and activities related to Lime Kiln Point State Park’s unique location, diverse ecosystems, and historic structures.


Lime Kiln Park needs the extra hands due to the severe staff and budget cuts in recent years.  FOLKS receives no funding from Washington State Parks, but is allowed to use the Parks resources so that, in turn, FOLKS is a resource for Washington State Parks & our Park.  FOLKS’ strength is our volunteers.

Lime Kiln Point State Park is the jewel of San Juan Island

Lime Kiln Point State Park is one of the most beloved parks in the state and attracts visitors from all over the world.  This Park’s precious 36 acres and shoreline contain examples of the Salish Sea ecosystem, a historic lighthouse, and lime kiln, as well as premier views of Orca whales many days of the year.

Many Islander businesses depend upon this iconic destination for the steady flow of visitors ensuring seasonal income.  Many locals are regulars at the Park and have given their own private park tours to visiting friends and relatives. It has been our experience that out-of-town visitors leave the Park with a better understanding of this special place that we all cherish so deeply.
