Facing west, off Chuckanut Drive, one of the country's most breath taking scenic drives, in addition to picknic facilities and a playground, trails lead out to the rocky shore, with benches and the "Big Flat Rock" for taking in sunsets over the water and islands. Please note all Washington parks require a car tag, available by the year or visit.... More

Bring your canoe or kayak to Larrabee State Park and enjoy the beautiful lush scenic beauty that surrounds you. The soul rejoices, the spirit moves you to silence and the sheer majesty of your surroundings add years to your existence in mere moments. Regrets for having made such a timely stop? None that I know of . . . .... More

Drove along Chuckanut Dr and stopped in most of the view and trail spots down to the coves below....stopped at the Oyster Farm as well. Great education and it has a small area to enjoy a lunch of shellfish. Definitely make the drive if you have an hour or two.

Make reservations if you plan on camping, otherwise get there early for parking and just roam the park and go walking to the Bay. Phyllis

We hiked up Fragrance Lake and it was beautiful! The park is big and there are trails that we have not hiked but I am sure we will be back to this one.

We stayed here for BC long weekend. The camp sites were well maintained. Clean facilities.. However we were raided by racoons while we were sitting by the campfire. It was a bit unsettling as we had our small dog with us. We were given a pamphlet when we arrived about Racoon over population in the park. Also there is a... More

Very nice camping area, and a short walk to a pretty beach. The park itself is massive, and there's no way you could explore it all with a short stay. They have done a nice job listing existing trails, but there is a need to update the info. We found some of the trails to be confusing at inopportune crossroads,... More

Larrabee State Park is off of Chuckanut Drive, a little over five miles south of the edge of Bellingham. If you are enjoying a leisurely drive or plan to do some camping, I would recommend spending some time here. You have access to beaches, trails, and play areas for the kids, so everyone should be happy. The beach is accessible... More
