“Quiet location to spend quality time with your spouse and enjoy the sunset”

Bay View State Park
Attraction details
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Visited the Bay view state park during this long Canada Day Weekend and were we pleasantly suprised with this location. Met up with friends that were staying at the near by log cabins and this place is the right place if you want to spend a romatic and quiet time with your spouse away from the hustle bustle of the city. Located just and hour and half away from Vancouver the beach and sunset are BEAUTIFUL. Bay View State Park is a 25-acre camping park of saltwater shoreline on Padilla Bay near the city of Anacortes. The log cabins overlooking the waters were indeed quite serene and even though they were at capacity we never felt as though it was crowded and noisy. Went in the afternoon to the nearby La Cooner town which dictates a differnt review itself to do it any form of justice. The waters are calm and the birds making thier usual sounds is quite relaxing and again quite romantic. Do visit this place and you will be glad you did. Stay at the bay view park log cabins. Each cabin is furnished with one double bed and two single bunks. Cabin 5, (which we stayed in), has a restroom with sink, shower and toilet. Cabin 6 I am told has a restroom with sink and toilet. Cabins 1 through 4 share the restrooms which are nearby in the park. The also have a dedicated area for campers and RV's. Please remember if you do not have a discovery pass you will have to buy a $10/day pass for the days you plan to stay there. Hope this info helps.

We discovered this wonderful place just by driving by and then having to turn around in order to enter the beach. It is a great place to just sit and watch the water. Took our dog there for a walk, leash only, thank goodness. We didn't camp, but did drive around the spaces that are well hidden across the road from the bay.

They have benches and bathrooms to sit on and close by the beach. Walking up the beach there is lots to look at and plenty of places to spread a blanket. Saw one lady even swimming in the water with her dog..... Too early in the season for me.

I camp here a lot and enjoy it. There are however no trails (exept the ones the the bathrooms). The beach is amazing and the park is great for kids. If you go I recomnd site 10 because you have a great view of what people call "The Loop" whitch is a cement loop with a grass field in the center; exellant place for kids to play and for dogs.

The Campground area is not taken care of. It needs a total makeover and redo! The grounds are not maintained.
