Any suggestions for good, kid-friendly campgrounds in northern Washington? We're taking the Lil' Bigfoot from Oroville to Bellingham and plan to camp somewhere in between.

Thanks for input!

A couple of years ago we stayed at the state campsite at Winthrop (an old Western Town) it is Perrygyn lake....nice place

Have you ever been to Deception Pass on Whidbey Island ---delightful campsite. we have stayed there many times....
Also Birch bay which is past Bellingham,but not too far away....

been to Perrigan lake and Deception pass and both are nice. Kids loved Perrigan lake because of how open it is and how easy it was for them to meet other kids. Deception pass is way more private (forest like setting) and more scenic.

Just my experience

Heard Birch Bay is fabulous and the waterslides are nearby, Deception Pass is great..kids can ride bikes you can go down to the beach and you have Cranberry lake on one side and saltwater on the other..makes for easy entertainment. For a day trip you can go to the bunkers at Fort Casey on Whidby Island..they have a small campground there as well next to the Ferry terminal...bring flashlights if you go here. We go to Kayak Point only becasue it is super easy and close...You are in the woods quickly. Campground feels safe, site 15 and 16 for us are the best becasue the kids can run around in the hills behind those two campsites, depending on the age of the kids the bike loop is a little steep 6 and under it would be "to steep". They have a park below with a great play structure..beach is good for finding baby crabs but not a soft sandy beach. Recently went to Wenberg State Park...campground eh okay ...site 34 was a good privit enough one but you certainly don't feel like your in the woods here. The campground seems like an afterthought because it is in a residential neighbor hood with minimal trees...however this can be quickly overlooked midweek because the campground leads to a FABULOUSE BEACH..great sandy soft beach, roped in swimming area, lifeguard (somewhat) trees, shade, sun, concession stand..fun to observe all the teenagers prance around doing the mating dance preening themselves. Hope this helps have fun!

Winthrop and Twisp are must see areas of WA. Beautiful highways all around, the towns are amazing and lots of great dining and recreation. Try it in winter and summer seasons.

I spent two nights (Wed and Thursday) at the Lake Pearrygan SP July 23. Good place for kids.

I was able to get a full service site for my 13'Scamp for those two nights without reservations. I arrived about 330 PM. However, without reservations they couldn't let me stay longer (Over the weekend).

However, there are a lot of forest Service Campground along the river north of Pearrygun. Though not fancy the seem quiet pleasent.

That highway 20 has to be one of the prettiest drives in the north wet!!

The glacier at Washington pass is a cool place to stop and let the kids have a snowball fight (or two) the Ross lake/Diablo Dam is awsum any of the campgrounds before there are swell too. If money isn't too much of an issue the KOA in Winthrop has almost everything a kid could want including inner-tube rides (safe ones....read slow) down the adjoining river. A little far from town center but close enough to a good supermarket. The Highway 20 loop is awsum in itself, circling around to Levenworth and then (if you follow it far enough) comes back to the western island and back home if you're tired of traveling by then!

Larrabee state park is also a great place. Nice little beach with an outcroppong of rock that flows into the water that's home to lots of sea stars. It's near Bellingham off of Chuckanut Drive.

even if you don't stay drive through Chuckanut and waste some time in Fairhaven and downtown B-ham.

NOTE:
TIME is n e v e r wasted in Fairhaven, there's ALWAYS some new/different shope to tour through BEFORE you headto the Ferry Terminus!!
