Tiny sites, great beach

The good: it's not far from Seattle and we had a great time beach exploring.

The Meh: The trains. They aren't kidding. They are loud and they are all night. The sites themselves are super tiny. One of our groups had to pitch their tent in the parking space.

nice campground

Larrabee State Park is a publicly owned recreation area located on Samish Bay, six miles (10 km) south of the city of Bellingham, Washington. The 2,683-acre (1,086 ha) state park offers fishing, boating, and camping as well as mountain trails for hiking and biking. It is managed by the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission.

The park features a short walk down to a pebble beach with views onto Samish Bay and the San Juan Islands. For longer excursions, there are 13 miles of biking trails and 15 miles of hiking trails, including trails leading 1,940 feet up Chuckanut Mountain. Picnicking, boating, saltwater fishing, sailboarding, and beachcombing along 8,100 feet of saltwater shoreline are among the other recreational options. Two mountain lakes, Fragrance Lake and Lost Lake, offer freshwater fishing for hikers.The park also includes camping sites, an ampitheater, and large fields.

Campground was nice and bathrooms were clean. the campsites had a picnic table and fire pit. enjoyed our time at the campground. good for families and adults.

Great Family Spot

We stayed during Memorial weekend and had a blast! With young children we loved that Larrabee had a playground area and easy access to the beach. We also took advantage of the hiking trails nearby. One downfall is the heavy train traffic that runs straight thru the camp.

lush Forest, nice beach

sweet campsites. nestled in the super lush pnw forest. busy during summer. train tracks run right behind campground so expect to hear multiple trains per day passing by. nice little beach area as well.

Great location right near the water!

Campgrounds were very well maintained. We stayed in a walk-in site that was super close to a trail down to the water. Watched a gorgeous sunset from the rocks.

Bathrooms were close and clean!

Sites we’re close together but we felt like we had some privacy with trees. (Great for hammocking!)

If you’re there for more time, it’s worth it to explore some hiking trails nearby! We LOVE the chuckanuts!

Scoped it out...

We have not camped at Larabee State Park, but we did scope it out during a recent visit to Bellingham. Here’s what we saw:

-Great newer looking playground for kids: bonus for families!

-The Park is right next to a train track: and the trains go by frequently. Could be cool for kiddos. Could be a nightmare at bed time.

-We only saw the first loop of sites closest to the park entrance. They seem to look very close together, so privacy is pretty out the window. There are walk-in sites that you can book if you want better privacy.

-The sites back by the bathroom seem to look larger and more private.

-There are hiking trails and bike trails nearby.

-If you want to go out to eat: Bellingham is nearby!

We will book here in the future—and probably go for a Walk-In site.

Beautiful views of the San Juans

Beautiful beaches with even more incredible views. Great playground for the kids and miles of trails through the Chuckanuts. A train runs through the area and can be loud at night.
