Nice Views

This park has nice views off Chuckanut Drive. If you have extra time driving between Seattle and Bellingham, get off the freeway and enjoy the views.

We have camped here several times and stopped for day use, but there is a really steep (safe) long trail from the parking lot way down to the beach. Too dificult for us to navigate now that we are somewhat infirm. The boat launch cove is much lower (parking nearby)and a great place to kayak with out going into the... More

Good signage on Chuckanut Drive, so easy to find. Parking lot is an easy walk to the beach area, underpass below the train tracks; warnings that it can be noisy, but no trains when we were there. The trail was a bit muddy, as usual this time of year, but well maintained. Views of the strait are spectacular, lots of... More

Tremendous views from the Cyrus Gate Overlook in the upland section of the park. The overlook is off Cleator Road. As long as the road is open to the upper section it's free. The lower section by the seashore has a day use fee. The upper road is a long way in, a car is useful to get to the... More

This was a very nice camp site with a great price and plenty of room between sites. Someone in here complained about the train noise but the sites close to the tracks are marked as such so if you pick a site to close to the track it is on you.

Love the feeling of being on the west coast, soaking up the moist cool air and smelling the evergreen trees.

Sites are not level. Very tight and we felt very much like a trailer park. We did not stay but elected to go and find elsewhere.

It's actually been a while since we stayed here, but the date choices don't go back to when we stayed here. It's in a beautiful part of the state, and appears to be in the middle of nowhere. ...until you try to go to sleep. There is a train track nearby that has trains coming through several times during the... More

Fragrance Lake is one of the more popular trails in this area and is part of Larrabee State Park. The hike is a 1.9 mile round trip and is quite steep so be prepared to work those legs. After the first mile of steady uphill hiking through the forest you will come across a spur which leads to an unexpected... More
