Great little spot

Excellent spot. Biggest downside is the train that runs by. If you’re okay with that, you’ll have quick access to a small beach and local amenities in Bellingham. Sites are large and bathrooms are kept clean and sanitary.

Beautiful Day use + camping

I used to live in Bellingham years ago and had never camped here before. It's only a few miles from town, so you could head in there for a day away from the forest/beach, or you could hike one of the many trails leading to scenic views. Easy beach access, playground for kids, dog friendly. Bring earplugs if you're a light sleeper, the train tracks are right there.

Noisy

There is a train very close to the campground! It didn't bother us, but some might find that useful. We stayed 1 night here. It was pretty nice. Easy walking access to the beach/trails. cool mural tunnel.

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!
