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.

Trains Trains Trains

Love the location. Easy access to water nearby for crabbing/boating. But trains hooting every 2 hours or so throughout the night as they chugs through near the park. It was hard to get a good sleep.

Pretty, but loud.

Lovely area and views. We visited in the winter, so it was quiet. Downside was the trains barreling through all night. Could barely sleep with earplugs.

Awesome spot right off the bay!

thisnis a beautiful campground nestled right along the bay. There is a play ground ,covered picnic area , stage and of course walk the trails along and down to the beach or hit one of the amazing mountain bike trails. We see starfish on the rocks some times. This is an amazing spot for sunsets! The campsite is nice and the spots are fairly private but beware there is a train that rolls right next to the campground all night long!

Amazing Experince

Amazing views from beach and hiking trail. The campsites are extremely well maintained. The facilities rival any campground I have visited. I will say it's at the high end of what I would ever spend to camp. Highly recommend this stop if you are in the Bellingham area.

Great Hiking and Facilities

Camping at the group site closest to the rail lines. Clean facilities and available running water. Less than a mile walk towards trail head for Fragrance and Lost Lake. Completed a 14 mile hike with total elevation gain of about 2600'. Go early in day for hike less crowded. Also note for gear heads, great MTB downhill single track. Will second the train noise. They have to sound horn in the area when passing. Group campsite catches a healthy does of the sound.

Kayaking and hiking, not so great camping

The area is lovely with a day or two worth of nature to explore. Unfortunately the campground is too compact for our tastes. There is also road and train traffic that further killed the atmosphere set by the natural beauty. I would recommend coming here only for the day unless you are in an RV and will have your air conditioning on and windows closed anyway or are a heavy sleeper.

Trains

We didn't mind the noise of the trains at night but many other campers complained. There are also a lot of local activities that take place at this park. The weekend we stayed here there was a mountain bike race taking place. It is something to check in advance if you are looking for a quiet getaway. Larrabee may not be your best choice!
