Watch out for the rocks at the beach covered in moss and seaweed! 3 of 5 of my group that walked across them fell and were badly hurt. The rocks are obviously slick and under the soft moss are barnacles that shred your skin. Other than that it’s a beautiful drive there and a nice little walk down to the beach!

If you have a couple of hours this is a great place. Be sure to take your camera There is so much to see. By the water is outstanding. You could even take a picnic as there are tables through out the park I am sure that you will want to visit this place again and again

Started by walking to the beach which is typical N Washington stony beach. Beautiful walk down and trees right to the beach. Crossed the street from main area and hiked mile up to get to overlook of the bay. Drove through campsites and would like to return to camp. Downside to that is the train which came through twice in the 2 hours we were there.

If I could give 0 stars I would. My family and I arrived at 7 pm (referring to the campground) having been driving down the Al-Can for 5 days and just needed a place to car camp. It is wintertime, so we weren’t sure about the restrictions as far as whether the whole campground was even open. The hosts were present and their RV lights were on. We stopped to inquire about the campground and the man and woman inside the RV made eye contact with us through the window, shook their heads, and then proceeded to read their books while ignoring the knocks at the door. This is the last time I try to stay at a State Park due to the absolute rudeness of the hosts. We promptly left as we were made to feel extremely unwelcome. I should also say that I made this account just to leave this review. I don’t usually have complaints about places too often, but this was just awful especially after being exhausted after driving to Washington from Alaska in the middle of winter.

Apparently this is the first state park in Washington State. Very nice park that requires a Discover Pass (you can get a one day pass If you don't have one). Several nice bathrooms and play area for kids. Nice trails along the water with great views. They also have lots of hiking trails inland on the opposite side of hwy 11.

I'd love to camp there some time. Need reservations well in advance I think. Boating, beach kayaking, camping, picnicking and very nice views of the San Juan Islands. Located on a scenic highway.

Nice little camp ground and recreational sites. If you like trains one comes through on tracks nearby. Trail to beaches on the Puget Sound. Wetlands. And a wonderful driver back to Bellingham up Chuckanut Dr.

It’s beautiful! Reached by a scenic drive along Puget Sound, the park has abundant hiking trails and good access to the water. There is even a small beach where seal pups rest at times. They weren’t there when we visited, but there is a sign telling of this. Please don’t disturb them if they do happen to be there when you visit. The water is reached by a short downhill trail. The return walk isn’t too vigorous. When we went, we traveled from the south so we ended the drive in the old Fairhaven part of Bellingham and had a very pleasant lunch along the water. There are many quaint shops and good restaurants in the area.

We tent camped for 3 nights in July 2017. The park is at a beautiful location on Chuckanut Drive with beaches and hikes nearby. We used the boat ramp to launch our kayak and paddled along the shoreline. The restrooms and showers were clean. The main drawback and reason we won't camp there again was the excessive noise. The campground is right between the busy road and the nearby railroad line. The trains came by at all hours of the night and day, blasting their whistles. Too bad. It's a nice park.

The trains go by frequently and they either wake you or keep you awake. There is no IDEAL campsite to avoid the noise, but try to get a site to the east side of the campground.
