During your drives, or time spent in this beautiful northern area of the USA - take time to enjoy the serene section Mt. Vernon. Loved having the space to just look out on the water and the fresh air!

Bay View State Park is a simple, exploring park. Clean bathrooms, well-kept - it is a good place for a self-sufficent picnic. Bring your own entertainment for kids - there are no playgrounds. But nice to visit

I've been here many times. It's very pretty but the beach is on the rocky side. There is also a place to camp. Good place for having a family bbq or picnic.

While this park may not be the crown jewel of the Washington State it is a gem. The strength of this park is the staff and volunteers. They clearly take pride in their work. It is a small park with few amenities but is spotless....More

I don't think there is WiFi. I believe there is cell service out there. You might try calling the Padilla Bay Equestrian Center and ask if they have WiFi.
