Much larger than the park at park entrance

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... read more

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

3 stars does not reflect how nice the park really is. We were disappointed that a state pass must be purchased prior to visiting the park. We were willing to pay a fee of some sort, however, as we did not know about the pass and as being from out of state, we had to leave. Buy a state pass... More

I've biked through Larrabee a number of times, and loved it: rolling hills keep up a sweat, while the views open and close, with glimpses of the Sound and the islands on the other side. This time, we had a car; our B&B owner suggested we check out the newly-opened Rock Trail. The WTA has opened this new trail, working... More

My wife and I spent about 2 hours hiking here, hiking at water level and up fairly high among regal trees. It was all beautiful. My wife did a 3 hour hike the next day. We both loved it.

The BAD!!! Trains run all night long, creating so much noise I hardly slept. We only stayed one night because I cannot stand the noise and I don't want to get another sleepless night. There are signs in the park that says 'Excessive Train Noise'. So I thought that if I camped as far away from the trains, I will... More

This is one of Bellingham's treasures. A great place to take the family or go solo and wander the paths along the shoreline and rocky areas. Great view of the bay. A must visit.

We made a mistake and took the First Larrabee State park sign and ended up on top of a mountain... It was kinda cool, but it wasn't the beach. We finally found the correct part of the park a few minutes south on Chuckanut Drive. It's a nice short walk to the beach with beautiful views. I'm looking forward to... More
