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

The park was very beautiful. Digging clams on the beach was fun and kids loved it. A great day trip from Seattle.

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
