This state park is great for a weekend stay if you don't mind the price or the frequent trains that buzz the campsite at all hours of the night. The camp host was very accommodating and the facilities are clean. It's most redeeming quality was the parks proximity to the small town of Fairhaven. Overall I enjoyed my stay, but... More

Gorgeous views of the Bay. Nice hiking trails, nice bathrooms, fun playground. We did not see but there are plenty of camping sites too.

Great hike but need to be in shape as it is straight up to get to the lake. Lovely spot once you get to the top. Bring a picnic and rest awhile before heading down the steep trail. Bring water!

Four of us camped here for two nights, pre-booking what we thought would be the best site: A walk-in site with great privacy and a lovely setting. Unfortunately, the walk-in sites are even closer to the train, which screams past at all hours of the day and night (I counted 9 times on Saturday, between midnight and 6:30 am). The... More

Camping at Larrabee is tranquil, except when the train roars by! Options are to choose a site farther from the tracks, or be ready for nightly awakenings – unless you wear earplugs. We were surprised to arrive at this beautiful seaside park, and discover that it had a “reservation only” campground. But good news: it’s OK to camp for one... More

Since I lived locally, I took my sons to Larrabee for day visits. Tide pools, rocks with little critters of all sorts. The park is divided into two parts - the area near the park lot is grass with a stage. I have attended a wedding there. Then there is the waters edge, a bay. Fun!

This is one of my favorite state parks it gets a little crowded but if you do a little hiking away from the popular places where everyone hangs out you can find your own little beach.

Larabee State Park is definitely worth a visit for a short hike, or at least a drive through on Chuckanut Drive. We took a short hike down to a small alcove to explore some small tide pools and enjoy the views. The drive through is magnificent in itself. We stopped at one pullout where the road cut revealed fossils in... More

Up near the top of Chuckanut Drive you'll find a jewel of a state park. Larrabee is a great choice for the state's first state park. Drove through the camping area (full). Looked nice. Nice couple of picnic areas. One with a play area and a sound stage. Next to the stage is the trail down to the beach area.... More

As you travel on beautiful Chuckanut Drive you will come across a wonderful oceanside park with spectacular views of the ocean and San Juan islands. A short hike down to the ocean where you can beachcomb at low tide or take to the trail the other direction with views looking over the ocean. B..E..Utiful!
