“Excellent location for hiking”

Larrabee State Park
Ranked #9 of 83 things to do in Bellingham
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed June 4, 2014

This park is conveniently located to several beautiful hiking trails. It is also close to Bellingham, WA. so if you want to go into town for shopping or dining, it is an easy drive.
We hiked up to "Fragrance Lake" which is a small but gorgeous lake (5 miles round-trip; some elevation gain). There is also the Oyster Dome hiking trail nearby (I have not done this one yet).
You can find details on both hikes at the Washington Trail Association website http://www.wta.org/go-hiking/hikes/.

Caveat: There is a train located very close to the campground. The park has done a good job of putting signs up indicating which specific camping sites are next to the railroad. So be aware of this issue when you are booking your campsite.

A wonderful park with a great shoreline. Beware freight trains sounds as they come thru the park in the middle of the night! If you have a significant RV, drive to the park from the north starting in
Fairhaven, the road from the south is beautiful but narrow.

We enjoyed a morning walk along a short beach and then a steady incline trail hike, one of many in the park. It was Mother's Day and everyone was in the park so it was crowded, but it was a lovely day for an outing in a lovely place.

My son loves being under the train as it goes by. My daughter loves to get on the stage and sing to people. Lots to do and trails to walk. Love to take my dog to the beach and swim. Great place to visit.

This park is amazing. Everything from Clayton Beach to Fragrance Lake is worth a visit. Just be sure you have a Discover Pass. As a Washington State Park you must have a pass or could be fined.
