Camping at Larrabee is tranquil, except when the train roars by! Options are to choose a site farther from the tracks, or be ready for nightly awakenings – unless you wear earplugs. We were surprised to arrive at this beautiful seaside park, and discover that it had a “reservation only” campground. But good news: it’s OK to camp for one... More

Since I lived locally, I took my sons to Larrabee for day visits. Tide pools, rocks with little critters of all sorts. The park is divided into two parts - the area near the park lot is grass with a stage. I have attended a wedding there. Then there is the waters edge, a bay. Fun!

This is one of my favorite state parks it gets a little crowded but if you do a little hiking away from the popular places where everyone hangs out you can find your own little beach.

Larabee State Park is definitely worth a visit for a short hike, or at least a drive through on Chuckanut Drive. We took a short hike down to a small alcove to explore some small tide pools and enjoy the views. The drive through is magnificent in itself. We stopped at one pullout where the road cut revealed fossils in... More

Up near the top of Chuckanut Drive you'll find a jewel of a state park. Larrabee is a great choice for the state's first state park. Drove through the camping area (full). Looked nice. Nice couple of picnic areas. One with a play area and a sound stage. Next to the stage is the trail down to the beach area.... More

As you travel on beautiful Chuckanut Drive you will come across a wonderful oceanside park with spectacular views of the ocean and San Juan islands. A short hike down to the ocean where you can beachcomb at low tide or take to the trail the other direction with views looking over the ocean. B..E..Utiful!

Larrabee State Park is a must see for visitors. A short walk from the parking lot takes you to a beautiful beach with stunning vistas of the San Juan Islands. Camping is available, too. You'll need a Washington State Discover Pass for parking. There's a trailhead across the street from the Park entrance that switchbacks to a gorgeous look out... More

Good walking trails and clean picnic area. A nice place to spend a few hours. Plenty of place to park. Very beautiful area for sightseeing. A good walk down the hill to the beach so mobility impaired would have a problem. If you don't have a Washington State park pass, you can pay the $10 daily fee at the park... More

The grounds are beautiful. There is a small waterfall, lake, fish breeding stations, playground and trails to wander through.

There are great trails here leading through cliffs and towards the beach. We visited this park multiple times while living in Bellingham. The seasons bring changes to the trail areas and was one of our favorite areas in the fall. There is access to all people in areas of the park that do not require trail climbing.
