We love taking our grandchildren here. Lots to see and do and they can run to their hearts content. Some of the trails can be a bit challenging if you have any difficulties getting up and down stairs.

The oldest Washington State Park! This area has hiking trails, hiking views, camping, oceanside sunsets and so much more. Great for families and outdoor enthusiasts. Bring a picnic or camp for the weekend. Close to Bellingham, but you still feel like you're out in nature....More

Choose to drive up the coast and through the state park instead of I5! It is definitely worth the extra 10 minutes and have several areas to stop for a quick hike or just a scenic outlook.

Today I visited Larrabee State Park, located in Bellingham, WA. April 15th is Spring Day, so the park was free to the public. What a perfect day...blue skies...64 degrees...not too crowded...lovely day!

If you are camping with dogs, should you be concerned about black bears or cougars?

No, I wouldn't be afraid. Cougars and bears are usually scared off by dog's barking.
