Point Wilson is at the end of the Quimper Peninsula, approximately two miles north of the Port Townsend business district.
This low, broad sand-spit, extends over a half-mile into the water and marks the entrance to Admiralty Inlet from the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Here, the main shipping channel narrows and makes a sharp turn to the south into Puget Sound.
The Point Wilson Lighthouse, located in Fort Worden State Park, is on the National Register of Historic Places and the Washington State Heritage Register. It is one of the most important navigational aids in Washington, a link connecting Puget Sound and the Strait of Juan de Fu.
