Love the feeling of being on the west coast, soaking up the moist cool air and smelling the evergreen trees.

Sites are not level. Very tight and we felt very much like a trailer park. We did not stay but elected to go and find elsewhere.

It's actually been a while since we stayed here, but the date choices don't go back to when we stayed here. It's in a beautiful part of the state, and appears to be in the middle of nowhere. ...until you try to go to sleep. There is a train track nearby that has trains coming through several times during the... More

Fragrance Lake is one of the more popular trails in this area and is part of Larrabee State Park. The hike is a 1.9 mile round trip and is quite steep so be prepared to work those legs. After the first mile of steady uphill hiking through the forest you will come across a spur which leads to an unexpected... More

We have been to Larrabee State Park many times but finally went to the boat launch area to look around. We found the most beautiful cove surrounded by sand and cliffs, even some rock climbers practicing. What a treasure!

Large enough to lose yourself in, but small enough to navigate in a few hours, this park offers great views and amenities. We like to visit each time we're in town.

Awesome visit. Worth stopping and checking out the views. We went on a sunny day and accessed the beach but I think you could do this rain or shine

We were there for a day trip to Larrabee State Park. We went to the boat launch area which is very scenic with nice views of the water. I thought it was nice that they offer loaner life jackets for those who forgot theirs. I also liked the day use area of Larrabee State Park. We did not notice any... More

Larrabee is one of the oldest Washington State Parks and is situated on a hillside with a beach on the bottom and lake at the top. Cutting thru the park is a railroad line so some of the camp sites can be very noisy. Others are close to the road and thus road noise can be an issue. The sites... More

There is some beautiful scenery and many awesome trails in this area. However, think twice before deciding to camp overnight here. There are almost hourly trains that start in the evenings and run right next to the campground. The noise is deafening, and impossible to sleep through.
