This is a beautiful heavily wooded state park. There are beautiful ocean & sunset views along the bluff trail that starts at the campground. While the views are beautiful very little of beach is accessible due to the high bluffs. Some but not all sites are suitable for big rigs due to a lot of very large trees. The bathrooms and showers were clean. The office was seldom open but staff were seen frequently checking and maintaining the campground. If you have to self check in be sure to check the board at the check in station for available campsites. The showers take tokens that can be purchased from a vending machine at the check in station. All the campsites had a picnic table and fire ring and the campground host kept the sites clean. We enjoyed our time at this park and would stay again. We camped at Fort Ebey State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a great camping location. It is a State Park with electric and water hookups. My rating reflects the fact that there is not a dump station. The sites are layed out well, not too close together, with good privacy. There are plenty of trees that provide lots of shade. We really enjoyed staying there. I also knocked down the rating for the showers -- you had to use tokens to (rather than quarters), and the tokens were only available down the hill at the Ranger information station (not a huge deal, but a bit of a pain). Our kids loved exploring the park, the beach, and the rest of the island. We camped at Fort Ebey State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Fort Ebey was a WW2 coastal defense gun emplacement that was stripped and given to the State of Washington. It is mid-sized with a great location. Overlooking the Strait of Juan de Fuca from the western edge of Whidbey Island, the sunsets are spectacular, with the Olympic Mountains to the southwest and Canada visible to the North. As said before, this is a good family park, with numerous bike and foot paths traversing the bluff and surrounding woods. It does get very windy when there is an onshore flow, and it is a great place to go para-gliding or fly a kite. The sites are well laid out, marginally level and spaced far enough apart to give good privacy. The campground is about 1/4 mile away from the gate, and one heckuva' uphill bike ride, so hopefully you are in descent shape. It is also far enough away from urban lights to break out the telescopes for star gazing. As always, use the State Parks website to check each site and utilities (all trailer sites have water & 30-amp). Do not be surprised if you get buzzed by an E/F-18 Growler or P-3C Orion out of nearby Ault Field. If you need last minute supplies, Oak Harbor is a few miles up the road. Cell coverage was good with 3 bars on my Verizon Blackberry and Sprint Evo (no 4G) and my wifes T-Mobile cell had 1 bar. Over the air HDTV reception was good, with over 14 main and auxillary channels available, but strength was in the bottom 1/3rd of the meter. A prior review said the park was 'Big Rig' friendly. I doubt that is accurate, since my 35ft Motorhome was a tight fit between trees in one section, so be aware. We didn't use the facilities at the park. My wife really loves going here, and we will most certainly return next summer. We camped at Fort Ebey State Park in a Motorhome.

If you do not mind dry camping and love the outdoors this is the place for you. The sites are large and well spaced out. Several are "Big" rig friendly, but not all. Plan ahead, and reserve, if you need a big site. The park is beautiful and great for hiking and mountain biking. The location is excellent for touring the island too. Keep in mind that there is no dump site in the park. We camped at Fort Ebey State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a beautiful campground with lots of mature trees and shrubbery around the campsites. The park staff is friendly and available. There are lots of hiking trails and nearby Coupeville is fun to walk around and browse the shops in. We camped at Fort Ebey State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

It is a medium sized State Park situated in an historic and highly scenic location. It is on a high bluff overlooking the Strait of Juan de Fuca on the western edge of Whidbey Island. This is a good family park, with numerous bike and foot paths traversing the bluff and surrounding woods. The sites are well laid out and fairly private. Out of a total of 50 sites, only 10 have electricity and power. Some can accommodate larger rigs, where others can not. Over all, we found this park to be pleasant and quite enjoyable. A return trip is highly likely. We camped at Fort Ebey State Park in a Travel Trailer.
