10 Reviews of Bay View State Park
Fantastic location

This was a great site for a big party there were 22 of us - 8 kids. We were right in the center but felt like we had our own area. The kids were able to ride their bikes around and there was a huge grassy area just down the path they loved to go play at. We took the ferry over to Friday Harbor for lunch for a day trip. The kids also loved going down to the beach.

Water and facilities were easily accessed. Clean campgrounds. It was a great spot.

It was super easy to get to and I didn't feel like a wasted a day getting there or home.

Family friendly; convenient location

We actually stayed at the cabins rather than in a tent. The views of the bay from the cabin were great. The cabin is definitely luxurious if you’re used to tenting (two padded bunks and a queen sized bed; also has heat if you need it.) The campground is also very close to Skagit Valley (an easy bike ride to the tulip festival,) as well as close to Deception Pass which makes for a nice day trip.

The only caveat would be that it is quite noisy as it is right next to a main road and there was not a well enforced quiet time.

Enjoy the Silence

Fantastic campground just down the road from the ferry docks. Very clean and secluded camp sites. A five minute walk takes you to the beachfront where there are picnic tables. Lots of wildlife wandering around the grounds. The only thing that was a little strange was that you have to put quarters into the shower in order to get hot water…so definitely bring quarters.

Great views and very clean!

The whole park was clean and pretty quiet! It was right on the water and was exactly the right distance from Seattle to make us feel like we’d really left! Book ahead of time cause it fills up pretty fast!

Bay View

The campground sits above the bay. There are full hooks up. State Park. Beautiful !

Great for families with near by activities

Across the street from the beach and next door to the Padilla bay marine center. Theres a big field in the center of the park thats great for games and picnics. Wooded camp sites


We rented cabins when my sister and her family were in town from Ohio because they don't have camping gear. The cabins were fine, although not a fan of all the rats underneath and around. The location is not good. You walk down to the water next to a fairly busy road, then the view across the water is of some sort of industrial facility (maybe some type of electrical plant or refinery). If you are going to see deception pass stay somewhere else.

Small, cozy, beautiful

Wonderful but short overnight stay! It was a small site good for one large tent. Great way to stay so close to the water and still feel private :)

Expensive, not really on the bay. Local Park like feel

We were tired and had few choices, so we found this. It was pretty expensive for camping. Contrary to the name, it is not on the bay, but across from the bay. There were large "field" grassy areas for kids… One loop was almost entirely RV's and looked like a mini-mobile home park. Maybe good for a big family reunion, but not our cup of tea.

Near the slough

Just 20 minutes from Mount Vernon/Burlington, near the water front/slough. Small campsites (some really tiny) with picnic tables, pit toilets and potable water. Some sites have a water view, but most are tucked away in the trees. Walking path along slough is nice, but short. A bit overpriced for what you get. Cost=$25-35
