Good camping. Large green space in center of sites. Privacy is good from your neighbors space. Beach access is great. Bring your own activities for the family. Biking is "eh", not that big. Perfect site to visit Deception Pass and Anacortes area. It is within 2 hours of Seattle. Pads are level enough. Bring activities for the family....kite, remote control stuff, books, computer, etc. We camped at Birch Bay State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a nice park. Our site (22) was very level and spacious with huge cedar trees and lots of shade. A beach with a lovely view and nice sunsets... but VERY rocky... not very good for a beach walk. Lots of kids when we were there, riding bikes around the RV loops...but still generally peaceful. No WIFI. Adequate cell service (AT&T). We camped at Birch Bay State Park in a Travel Trailer.

October 29-30. Last minute end of the season trip for us. Did not make reservations. Very few campers here although the summer season is another story. Year round camping at this State Park. Good water and power. Good Verizon cell and Verizon MIFI signal. Restrooms have been remodeled since the 2011 review as the showers are now huge. (50 cents/3 minutes) Inside part of the loop has power and water. The outside of the loop has none. Short walk to the beach. No cable but was able to tune into several Canadian/Canadien TV channels with the antenna. We will be back. We camped at Birch Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

The back-in sites are private but short so we had to scout around to find one that was long enough. We were only staying one night so did not want unhitch. The site had no services except for a fire pit and picnic table but a short walk took us to the beach area. There are side-by-side, pull-through sites in the centre of the loop with 30A power and water with a sani-dump nearby. We had no on-air TV but excellent cell service. We camped in a travel trailer but would not stay here again. We camped at Birch Bay State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Rate includes on-line reservation fee. There are plenty of big trees making the access road is a little tight for big rigs, but it is passable with care. Spaces are gravel with water and electric only. Dump station can handle two rigs at a time. Good AT&T signal for voice and data. A great location, near the water. We did a day trip to Victoria. The campground is only 50 minutes from the ferry terminal. We camped at Birch Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

A beautiful setting with plenty of activities within the park. Grounds are well-maintained with generally good privacy at back-in sites, and no privacy in pull-through sites. Restrooms were clean but showers did not work (ate quarters, spotty hot water, etc.). We camped at Birch Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful state park located on the ocean. A lot of opportunities for walking, hiking and viewing wildlife in the vicinity. The new shower/bath house was immaculate. The showers are short and require a quarter for 3 minutes. Roads through the campground are paved and clean. The park is very quiet. A free sani-dump is available at the park entrance. We camped at Birch Bay State Park in a Travel Trailer.

A great State Park. We had a pull-through site which easily accommodated or motorhome and tow car. The do need to trim a few of the overhead branches, however. The park was very pleasant and excellent for biking and with access to local beaches. We camped at Birch Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

Pretty sterile park not much for amenities. No sewer but a dump station. Had to wait 15 minutes in line. Typical state park ran by individuals that have no incentive. We camped at Birch Bay State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We like this park. We have stayed before in the hook up area, this time we were in the no hook up area. The only problem I see with the hook up area is it’s surrounded by non hook up sites and the time we were there someone had a very loud gen set. This park has lots of tall tree cover. Solar and satellite TV will be hard to get in most sites. We only received two TV stations on the over the air antenna. Verizon cell and broadband worked well. We now stay across the road from the hook up area. Most sites are wooded and private. We will be back. We camped at Birch Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice state park in wooded area near stony beach across a nice flat biking road to nearby summer village of Birch Bay. We had a hookup site - there are only 20 so a reservation would be advisable in season. The campground was a bit dark under the big trees, but otherwise it was delightful. Large sites, reasonably private. We camped at Birch Bay State Park in a Motorhome.
