  • I have been to Bay View State Park many times. It is a good place to have some peace and quiet. Would go there again.

  • We loved this state park, whether it’s for a day trip or camping overnight. There is a trail as well and you can walk around the beach if the bay. At night the skyline looks beautiful. We did RV camping here and we had a great experience. It wasn’t over crowded and they have cabins as well which are very cozy. Definitely worth the trip and would visit again if we get reservation for summer 😉
  • It's a real nice state park. Good location. Camping area is not on the beach but the access is good. Beach area is nice with picnic tables and some cover. About 15 minutes to Anacortes if you want to shop or go out to dinner. Some airplane noise from nearby municipal airport. I would like to recognize the Rick who is a volunteer at the park. He is a marine veteran and very friendly.
