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!

Larrabee State Park is a must see for visitors. A short walk from the parking lot takes you to a beautiful beach with stunning vistas of the San Juan Islands. Camping is available, too. You'll need a Washington State Discover Pass for parking. There's a trailhead across the street from the Park entrance that switchbacks to a gorgeous look out... More

Good walking trails and clean picnic area. A nice place to spend a few hours. Plenty of place to park. Very beautiful area for sightseeing. A good walk down the hill to the beach so mobility impaired would have a problem. If you don't have a Washington State park pass, you can pay the $10 daily fee at the park... More

The grounds are beautiful. There is a small waterfall, lake, fish breeding stations, playground and trails to wander through.

There are great trails here leading through cliffs and towards the beach. We visited this park multiple times while living in Bellingham. The seasons bring changes to the trail areas and was one of our favorite areas in the fall. There is access to all people in areas of the park that do not require trail climbing.

A nice place to spend a few hours. Great play park for kids, cool trails to cliffs and beaches. Make sure you stand in the tunnel on trail to beach when a train goes overhead.......

I always thought Larrabee was just where the park entrance, band shell and beach was, but this weekend my friend showed me how extensive the hundreds of acres with multiple trails is. There are numerous hikes ranging from easy to more strenuous, so I will explore more thoroughly soon.

Larrabee is quite small as State Parks go but is very clean and has nice camp sites. The salt water beaches and fresh water lake are wonderful for a quick dip if you can handle the cold water. I have been going there for 63 years and still love it.

I love nature walks so this was perfect for me. You pay for parking and then can spend as long as you like there. I went with my boyfriend and we took a picnic to have while we were exploring everywhere. There are public toilets too! We went on a cloud and cold day but we still got a wonderful... More
