Nice clean park! Large grassy area short walk to the beach! Wish the sites were a little longer and had full hook ups! Short drive to shops if you forgot anything

August 17-22, 2014. The bad There is too much noise at night because of planes/trains until about 11pm. After that it becomes quite. The plane's noise sometimes gets deafening it can wake up the dead! I usually go to sleep at 10pm but it is still too noisy so I go to sleep at 11pm instead. The good One of... More

The drive along Chuckanut Drive is so enjoyable. Arriving at Bay View state park we were greeted by such a friendly attendant. We stayed in cabin number 5 which has a full size bathroom. It felt as nice as a hotel room. Clean and tidy. A bedside light was on when we arrived which was such a simple but nice... More

Marine views of Padilla Bay with a short walk from the campsite to the beach makes this a sweet destination weekend camping location. Rv spots with water and electric hookups are fairly private with trees for shaded spots in the Summer. Long shoreline for walking and exploring at low tide. NIce bathroom facility with quarter operated showers.

Great location. Nice place to camp and/or picnic. Room to run around and explore the beach. There is a nature center close by and many activities to which to drive in Mount Vernon, Burlington, Anacortes, La Conner. I live in the Skagit Valley so have been there many many times over the years.

I stopped here for a while to eat and stretch my legs. I have an annual Discover pass so it did not cost me anything. There was a strong breeze blowing and I spent a pleasant half hour watching a number of people kite surfing. There were a number of people on shore watching. The kite surfers were using the... More

I've camped here twice with my young grandchild and her parents as well, and really enjoyed both experiences. The campground isn't the best I've known but good enough for a short stay in a tent. There are nice bathrooms and showers (bring quarters), a large grassy area for games, and access to the beach for swimming, beachcombing, picnics or --... More

I have gone to Bay View State park for many many years and it is one of the best . I have camped and picnic at it and always found it a great place, woods, water shores and all the serenity. All around good place.

My wife and I rented cabin 5c in July. If u want a shower in the cabin 5c is the only one. Cabin was clean and the area was peaceful. The local farms were serene. The refinery way across the water affected star gazing at night but the sunset was great. Close to town and Anacortez for whale watching and... More

We stayed in cabins. The stay was good. The campground is reasonably clean. The washrooms really really really need an upgrade. Only one shower for so many camp sites. The young staff are grumpy and unfriendly. They do work hard for sure but a smile will go a long way. May be they did'nt like when asked to replace toilet... More
