This park is amazing. Everything from Clayton Beach to Fragrance Lake is worth a visit. Just be sure you have a Discover Pass. As a Washington State Park you must have a pass or could be fined.

The trains go by frequently and they either wake you or keep you awake. There is no IDEAL campsite to avoid the noise, but try to get a site to the east side of the campground.

The LarabeeState Park is simply stunning. My husband and I wwere humbled by the beauty of the trails. Be sure to go up to Fragerance Lake and takethe short hike to the lookout point-you won't be disappointed. Also, to visit Washington state parks you need a Discovery Pass ($10 per visit or $30 per year). I've heard they check for... More

All services available for RV's, and Tent camping to. But the best is the scenery and the beach, rock climbing, a stage and pavilion that the Washington state rangers have many presentations on. The only down side I would have to this park is the BNSF main line goes right through the park, but I never heard them blowing the... More

Since I grew up in the area I have many fond memories of this park. The problem is that this is not the type of park I would go out of my way to visit if I was from outside the area (try Deception Pass State Park instead). If you like exploring tide pools, exploring the many trails and semi-trails,... More

This was really not much of a park. Train tracks through the park, views mostly obstructed. Limited access. We were disappointed.

We stayed for two nights in the campground of this park. The campground is close to a train line and quite a few of the tent-only sites are close to the road as well. Initially we stayed in #24 but switched after the first night, because the site is pretty much in full shade and very wet. The second night... More

Nice beach to throw stones and explore tide pools. A good walk down the hill to the beach so mobility impaired would have a problem. Nice picnic areas but as noted by the train tracks. If you don't have a Washington State park pass, you can pay the $10 daily fee at the park with an envelope drop box, so... More
