This isn't the most developed park, but it is a stop worth making along the picturesque Chuckanut Drive to/from Bellingham. There are a series of trails that go about the park that one has to take a chance on and figure out randomly. You're rewarded...More

This is such a beautiful place. The cliffs, rocks and bay scenery are so breath taking. The dock is shallow in the summer low tides and full of kelp and eel grass late summer early fall - so watch out. Lot's of nice trails.

Beautiful place to hike. There are plenty of places to stop and take photos of the beautiful scenery. Definitely nice to stop and take in the fresh air. We felt safe walking through the park as well.

Surrounding area with stunning views of the bay and islands in distance. However, camping is only in the wooded area (which is not bad but darkish) and close by camp spaces. Was over crowded when we were there and did not feel much privacy. Hikes...More

Larrabee State Park off Chuckanut Drive Bellingham WA is a lovely picnic spot for us on our way to Seattle WA. Nice to escape from the highway scenery fr a quick picnic break.
