And that's the problem, it's buried.
Some of us don't need anything but to be pointed to the boat ramp.
This post points the way.
BOAT RAMPS TO THE SAN JUANS << hot link, clickety click!
Should you take your boat trailer on the ferry and get off somewhere? NO! - I don't recommend it unless you are going to a resort that has a ramp and you plan to rent a cabin -- plan on spending substantial time waiting in ferry lines. Be forewarned, some so-called local ramps are simply sandy beaches with no docks. Plus the ferry rates for trailers - ouch.
If you carry kayaks on the roof, riding a ferry makes good sense. My #1 suggestion for kayakers that don't want to paddle across Rosario Strait -- go to Deer Harbor on Orcas Island, park your car and paddle two miles to Jones Island for a night or two camping.
Let's say you carry a kayak on the roof or trailer a day-sailer and plan on camping on shore, and you don't want to deal with ferries - do this. Drive to Washington Park in Anacortes, (campground and ramp) set up your camp, splash your boat and sail or paddle to either Pelican Beach on Cypress or Saddlebag Island. Spend the night or come back each evening. Using the currents, you can avoid difficult paddling or fluky sailing if that's what works for you.
Hint, use the search box and search Saddlebag or Cypress or Pelican Beach or Deer Harbor, or Jones.
