Washington Park is a nice clean park with 3 loops. 1 loop for non hookups. Most of these sites are on the outside of the campground and provide good privacy. The outer hookup loop A has some great spots. Most sites back up to the forest and have nice privacy. The park rangers come around several times a day to check reservations and bring wood. They have a great map so you can explore the many trails in the park. There is also a beach and boat ramp near the campground. We have stayed there several times during the covid19 shut downs. Will go again after we explore other campgrounds in the area.
This is a large campground on Orcas Island. It sits on Lake Moran which is a fun lake to kayak and cliff jump. If you follow the road up to Mt. Constitution, there is a lookout tower that resembles a castle. From here you get one of the most spectacular views of the San Juan Islands.
This is probably one of the coolest places to visit. It is an old army base with all sorts of bunkers to explorer. As I Boy Scout, this was one of our favorite places to camp each year. On top of the hill are bunkers that stretch probably a quarter-mile and are perfect for playing an ultimate game of capture the flag.
There is also beach access and plenty of historic buildings to check out. They have two campgrounds, one down by the beach and the other up top.
Loved this RV Park. The staff was very friendly and helpful as we were first timers with absolutely no experience. We also visited during the start of the COVID-19 Pandemic which made their efforts to ensure we enjoyed our time even more appreciated. Follow us @therv_gans on IG more more pics of this RV Park as well as our journey and transition to full time RV Living! #freedom
Seems like these sites are quite popular. However, I went during the middle of the week, on a slightly rainy day, at the end of August and was the only person there.
If you're like me and not from Washington, remember to get a discovery pass (~$10 per day) if you're parking at the Baker Lake Trailhead. The hike in to Maple Grove is approx. three and a half miles. Don't be surprised if you run into some folks on horseback.
The trail is relatively flat and goes through some beautiful old growth forest. We got a spot right by the lake that was flat and soft. All of the sites had fire pits and seemed pretty dispersed. There were also bear boxes. The vault toilets were some of the cleanest I'd seen.
As you can see from some of the photos, there's a dock that you could boat up to that doubles as a great place see Mt. baker.
Have some close family friends that have stayed here multiple times in the past two years. They rave about how it’s a GREAT campground for kids and families. They have a mini train & train tracks set up that runs throughout the property. There’s also a disc golf course on site, a petting zoo, games, and even arts & crafts for the kids. It’s also directly across the street from a big park with 2 amazing off-leash areas for dogs, a skate park, basketball hoops, tennis courts, baseball fields, and more! The kids will never get bored with all these activities.
We camp here at least twice per year. You can reserve online at the state parks website months in advance (dont expect to get in last minute). Currently the upper campground is under construction, so spaces are limited. We love the upper bunkers, the views, the beach, and the history. No water hookups in winter. Great places for all ages!
