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

Visited the Bay view state park during this long Canada Day Weekend and were we pleasantly suprised with this location. Met up with friends that were staying at the near by log cabins and this place is the right place if you want to spend a romatic and quiet time with your spouse away from the hustle bustle of the...

We discovered this wonderful place just by driving by and then having to turn around in order to enter the beach. It is a great place to just sit and watch the water. Took our dog there for a walk, leash only, thank goodness. We didn't camp, but did drive around the spaces that are well hidden across the road... More
