There is something for everyone here. The beach, swimming in unheated adjacent fresh water lake (same parking place). Picnic tables. Camp spots (by reservation). Big waves if it is high tide and windy. Amphitheatre, camping spots. Boat watching. People watching. Park ranger lectures. Wonderful.

We just stopped to take a picture and the very rude park ranger was there and said if we didn't pay $10 we would be fined $100 dollars...it wasn't like we were camping or having a picnic at the park, just took a picture! we have done this at other parks and the rangers always have been nice, but not this jerk!! Mr high and mighty is going to keep people from visiting state parks with his attitude!

This is a great hiking area if you enjoy views.
To me it is a great area for taking walks.
also i would not reccomend boating under it because of the whirlpools. Anyways,i would highly reccomend it.

No trip to Whidbey is complete without visiting the Deception Pass Bridge. The bridge has a beautiful view of the water and the forest around it is lovely. Nice place to take a minute and admire the scenery of the Northwest.
