We camp a lot and usually like to go hiking or exploring something. There is no hiking here, and the beach is closed because it is contaminated. And it really does not have a sandy beach. If you have small children then this is the place to go, They have a big grass play area surrounded by camp sites. Perfect... More

Bay View State Park is a nice little park to just hang out or take a stroll along the beach. The day use area is mainly a big lawn area with some tables. Great spot for picnicking, relax, or play a bit. The view of Padilla Bay and the San Juan Islands across the way is great. Only negative would... More

This is a nice smaller park with good size RV spaces at Padilla Bay. We did reserve but probably not necessary in the winter months. The attendant was very welcoming. She even sells family size s'more fixings. We did not experience any noise from planes-peaceful. Restrooms with showers were clean. Overall a nice stopping point.

This was our first stay in a State Park, we have always stayed at club parks. I was very impressed. The view was spectacular, lots 1-10 are the best in my opinion. Lot 6 had a very nice courtyard behind and all of our neighbors were very friendly. The beach is a very short walk. The Park Hosts were all... More

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
