Larrabee State Park is off of Chuckanut Drive, a little over five miles south of the edge of Bellingham. If you are enjoying a leisurely drive or plan to do some camping, I would recommend spending some time here. You have access to beaches, trails, and play areas for the kids, so everyone should be happy. The beach is accessible... More

We spent one night in mid June with an RV - nice walk along the beach in the early evening - but beware - noisy freight trains through the night, always blowing their 'wild west' whistles. Very scenic drive to get to the campsite tho', along Chuckanut Ridge - was the old Highway 1. Max vehicle would be a 25ft... More

The beach here is beautiful, there is lotws of great hiking, and the tent campsites have a decent amount of privacy. If it weren't for the loud trains this would be the perfect camping place, but sadly there are trains that go by on a pretty regular basis - light sleepers bring earplugs.

This park is conveniently located to several beautiful hiking trails. It is also close to Bellingham, WA. so if you want to go into town for shopping or dining, it is an easy drive. We hiked up to "Fragrance Lake" which is a small but gorgeous lake (5 miles round-trip; some elevation gain). There is also the Oyster Dome hiking... More

A wonderful park with a great shoreline. Beware freight trains sounds as they come thru the park in the middle of the night! If you have a significant RV, drive to the park from the north starting in Fairhaven, the road from the south is beautiful but narrow.

We enjoyed a morning walk along a short beach and then a steady incline trail hike, one of many in the park. It was Mother's Day and everyone was in the park so it was crowded, but it was a lovely day for an outing in a lovely place.

My son loves being under the train as it goes by. My daughter loves to get on the stage and sing to people. Lots to do and trails to walk. Love to take my dog to the beach and swim. Great place to visit.

This park is amazing. Everything from Clayton Beach to Fragrance Lake is worth a visit. Just be sure you have a Discover Pass. As a Washington State Park you must have a pass or could be fined.

The trains go by frequently and they either wake you or keep you awake. There is no IDEAL campsite to avoid the noise, but try to get a site to the east side of the campground.
