Heavily forested. Campground road was paved, and a bit narrow. Sites were dirt and also a little narrow. The sites inside the loop back into each other, so there is little privacy. The sites on the outside of the loop appeared to have more privacy- but were still tight. There is a train nearby. It didn’t bother us, but one section of the campground (that we weren’t in) was a sign warning of loud train sounds (I think it was sites 42-46 or something like that). We camped at Larrabee State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice state park not too far from the city. The park is really not set up for large rigs, although there are a few sites that larger RVs can get into. The park is heavily wooded, so no way to get satellite. Our Verizon phone and data card (MiFi) worked well with fast 4G service. The park does get some road noise, but it quiets down at night. There is also the train, but we love trains so that did not bother us at all. It is nicely dark at night. Because of the tree coverage, it is also pretty dark during the day. There are camp hosts that were pleasant enough. If visiting the area, we would definitely stay here again. We camped at Larrabee State Park in a Motorhome.
Stayed with husband and boxer for 2 nights. There is very little reception here for cell or data. The sites are not huge by any means. The gravel/rocky beach is very nice as are the trails to cliff areas: you can sit and just listen to the waves, really nice. Wasn't crowded, but its not summer. Trains did not bother us at all but we live in the city. Camp host very nice and helpful. We camped at Larrabee State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Like many of the Puget Sound area Washington State Parks, Larrabee is pinched in by development on all sides, but it is a jewel in its own rite. First off, I wouldn't bring anything longer than 35ft. into the park; the trees along the most of the campsites can 'bite' you (happened to brush the awning on my rig despite my best efforts). There are 50 dry sites only large enough for tents, campers or pop-ups, plus eight tent only, walk-in sites. The other 26 sites are full hook-ups, but only 5 are suited for rigs larger than 32 feet. Make sure you use the state parks website before you reserve a spot, and bring lots of good blocks. I purchased 2 sets of 'LynxLevelers' stack-able blocks to go under the tires (to supplement the 3" wooden blocks I normally use for my leveling jacks). Unfortunately, all 20 Lynx blocks barely kept the passenger side tires touching earth because the rear jacks were still fully extended and we still weren't level. Other reviews mentioned the trains. Yes, they pass along the west side of the park, but it never bothered us (we had the windows closed and A/C on at night due to the heat), but I did hear the horns sound several extra times during the evenings as people were crossing the tracks when returning from the beach. Mosquitoes were only bad at sunset, but the biggest environmental issue for me was the noise from the big bikes that ran up and down Chuckanut Drive. I didn't use the parks restroom facilities, but my daughter said they were clean, but "smelled musty because the fan was broken". The pull-through sites are 30 amp, but I did see that 2 of them had 50 amp connector for what it's worth. One final note about the park is how convenient it is to local sites. Historic Fairhaven has lots of neat shops and is the hopping off point for the Alaska Ferry System and visits to Vancouver, Mt. Baker Ski area (with the beautiful views at Artists Point) and down to Whidbey Island. We camped at Larrabee State Park in a Motorhome.

This is an older state park so getting around and finding a site for a decent size RV is difficult. We had real problems with leveling on the pull-through sites. Also, the park does get a little "rowdy" on the weekends. We stayed here in order to visit relatives on the south side of Bellingham since there weren't any other RV park alternatives in that area. We had difficulty trying to find a park attendant to answer questions, but it was the last week of taking reservations so the number of staff had been decreased by then. We camped at Larrabee State Park in a Motorhome.

This was a beautiful state park. Many hiking and biking trails. The beach area is awesome with lots of rocks to climb. They have a big playground and grassy field for kids. Very clean and well kept. Spacious and secluded camp sites. We camped at Larrabee State Park in a Travel Trailer.
