RV stay (40 foot) at Bay View.

Great stay in a 40 foot RV. Nice facilities (water and 50 amp electric) but a little pricey ($38.00/night) for not having sewer! Our location was at the entrance to the park so... read more

We rented a cabin (C4) for 2 nights, then moved to cabin C5 for another 2 nights. Both were clean and accommodated the 3 of us just fine. C4 was a lot smaller and the view was not as nice as C5 which had its own bathroom/shower. C4 did not have a bathroom and we had to take a shower... More

We stayed 2 nights at Bay View State Park campground late June 2015. The Pros: close enough to San Juan Islands ferry dock that it wasn't a long haul early in the AM to make the boat, has sites with water/electric with big enough back-ins that it was easy to park our 30' RV, campground on one side of the...

Park was clean and well organized. It was nice to see a place where bottles and cans were actually recycled as other State Parks seem to be missing this concept. The beach was rocky, but clean. The park had many volunteers working at making things run smoothly. Nice place.

Had a nice walk through the park and along the Padilla Bay walking trail (2+ miles one way). Beautiful day with great views of Padilla Bay! The park is very nice and family friendly. Day Use area is by the beach. WA state Discovery Pass needed for parking, or else park a few blocks away at the Padilla Bay parking... More

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
