Camped at Larrabee State Park for 2 nights in August 2014. It is in a gorgeous spot, and was very close to the launch spot for a kayaking trip with Moondance Sea Kayak Adventures. The park itself is beautiful. The only reason I'm giving this 4 stars is because the campsites are very close together, and there is a train... More

We went trailer camping during summer time to Larrabee and we liked this park a lot. Good size camping spaces, easy trails and marvelous views from the rocky shore! Just great! You can spend hours sitting in those gorgeous rocks taking pictures and finding inner peace... l Great scenic photography! Quiet and peaceful except when the train passes by (a... More

Park your car right on Chuckanut Drive (near the park entrance) and take your pick of hiking trails either downward to the rock cliffs perched about Bellingham Bay, or hike up the mountain to see a really nice birds eye view of Bellingham Bay. Continue on upwards on the trail to Fragrance Lake and maybe even take a refreshing dip... More

A great stopping point on the gorgeous Chuckanut drive! Always a scenic and quiet retreat – except the moment when you can see a train roll by. Sometimes you can spot orcas and other marine life out in the bay. Another good outlook point is Teddy Bear Cove and the boat launch at Cove Road.

The park itself is great, but its a state park and you have to pay to play, which isn't right. We already pay taxes, and now they want more more to change the garbage. Ya right. Its not expensive to visit, its the purpose. Theres campsites in the park for a fee.

Facing west, off Chuckanut Drive, one of the country's most breath taking scenic drives, in addition to picknic facilities and a playground, trails lead out to the rocky shore, with benches and the "Big Flat Rock" for taking in sunsets over the water and islands. Please note all Washington parks require a car tag, available by the year or visit.... More

Bring your canoe or kayak to Larrabee State Park and enjoy the beautiful lush scenic beauty that surrounds you. The soul rejoices, the spirit moves you to silence and the sheer majesty of your surroundings add years to your existence in mere moments. Regrets for having made such a timely stop? None that I know of . . . .... More

Drove along Chuckanut Dr and stopped in most of the view and trail spots down to the coves below....stopped at the Oyster Farm as well. Great education and it has a small area to enjoy a lunch of shellfish. Definitely make the drive if you have an hour or two.

Make reservations if you plan on camping, otherwise get there early for parking and just roam the park and go walking to the Bay. Phyllis

We hiked up Fragrance Lake and it was beautiful! The park is big and there are trails that we have not hiked but I am sure we will be back to this one.
