Just a gorgeous bridge and scenery. The pedestrian walk across the bridge is superb. Looking down is somewhat scary for those who are afraid of height but you will have a most wonder view from both.... more »
Spectacular views of water. It was easy to park. The walking trails were easily accessible from the parking area. more »
Deception Pass State Park is such an amazing location. Fabulous views. Great beach! Several picnic tables. Ample parking. Many trails for hiking. Wildlife abounds. Great for a family picnic or a peaceful escape. Conveniently located not too far off WA-20. During peak season, a day pass is $10 or you can use your Discover Pass ($30) for unlimited access. Pet stations available. Camping is also permitted (reference website for details).
Went overnight camping and was actually impressed with this place. I had camp spot 24 which was very secluded. Showers take tokens and if I remember right $1 gets you 6 minutes of shower time. I swear they run longer though. Very nice. Enjoyed walking my dogs through the campsites along the road. Would go there again.
