“where the mountains meet the sea”

Set on the seaward side of Chuckanut Mountain near Bellingham, Larrabee State Park is known for its postcard views of Samish Bay and the San Juan Islands. It is also Washington’s first state park. This unique camping park on famed Chuckanut Drive offers boating, fishing, shellfish harvesting and diving. A ¾-mile hike takes you to the rare sandstone cliffs and teeming tidepools of Clayton Beach. This is the perfect spot for a quiet time out, an exploratory jaunt with the kids or a romantic date. Though the shore is the main draw at Larrabee, freshwater Fragrance and Lost lakes provide excellent bass and trout fishing. Hiking and mountain bike trails wind through a forest of Douglas-fir and salal.  Train-spotting is also part of the Larrabee experience. The Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad and Amtrak run trains up to 16 times a day (including at night) on the Burlington Northern track by the beach. This can be a noisy proposition for light sleepers but great fun for train buffs and kids.  Park visitors often enjoy the full 21-mile meander along Chuckanut Drive and discover the charm and flavor of Northwest Washington with a side trip into Bellingham, with its variety of attractions and amenities.

Terrible place to sleep when you have trains going by all night long, that are extremely loud.

hough the most idyllic lunch spot is four miles away at Larrabee State Park, with its tide pools and sandstone bluffs.
