“Great place to stay - next to sometimes noisy air force base. ”

Reviewed Apr 14, 2019

Overall Rating

This is a beautiful area of the PNW. We stayed in site 38, in forest loop. Defiantly in the trees although our solar panels still charged up the batteries just fine. Following a trail or the roadway it’s about a 15 minute walk to west beach. Watching the sunset with whales blowing and sea lions diving around really made the experience ... more

“Beautiful location - but scout carefully if you have slides”

Reviewed Mar 14, 2019

Overall Rating

The park is in a great location for nature, scenery and a quick drive into Oak Harbor (~10 miles). Spent an entire day with the puppy and the kids on the North Shore beach, soaking in the sun, following trails and finding cool things on the beaches. Check the site pictures critically. Many sites have trees and logs that might keep... more

“Very nice Washington State Park, with some minuses ”

Reviewed Oct 13, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed at the Deception Pass Campground for 3-nights during our jaunt around Whidbey Island. We liked the location of the campground, as the sights were nice and wooded, clean, and the beach areas were picturesque. However I had a few issues, one of which is that this Washington State Park takes reservations for every site, theref... more

“Great stop for the night, wish we had more time to explore”

Reviewed Aug 02, 2018

Overall Rating

A last minute change of plans landed us here for the night (we were trying to avoid the heat wave inland). We stayed in the non-electric section. The space was a pull through and the site was rather large. We enjoyed walking down to the beach to watch the sunset. We didn't have any of the plane noise that others complained about- g... more

“Military war planes practice constantly overhead making unbearable noise”

Reviewed Jun 21, 2018

Overall Rating

This is a beautiful location that I once camped at years ago. I’ve spent the last two days with my family and it has been horrible. At times the planes flew so close it seemed like they were touching the treetops. The sound is unbelievably loud! I am writing this at 11:30pm on a Thursday night and I can’t sleep because of the sound... more

“ Incredibly gorgeous and incredibly noisy ”

Reviewed Feb 14, 2018

Overall Rating

It’s so sad that such an incredibly beautiful spot is so incredibly ruined by the fighter jets and other aircraft coming from the Naval air station just down the beach. There is a warning on the state parks reservation site about it. I thought, “how bad could it be“? Well it was quite bad. There would be some times where they would sto... more

“Old Forest Loop....5star....Simply amazing PNW campground”

Reviewed Sep 20, 2017

Overall Rating

Simply amazing. I would suggest the Old Forest Loop. It can handle up to 42 fool class A's. Old growth Sprue, cedar, and Douglas Fir. Private camping with water and electric.

First Time I camped here was in 1982, Still about the same.

The only downfall would be Jet Noise.

“Awesome park with a lot of privacy”

Reviewed Aug 21, 2017

Overall Rating

As others have said, the planes are very loud. I think I started getting used to them after a few days but if you're looking for quiet, keep that in mind. The sites are very shady and private. I stayed in the Quarry Pond campground and found it to be somewhat tight. I don't think I'd want a 40 ft RV here. The roads are a bit narrow wi... more

“Beautiful Noisy State Park on Whidbey Island”

Reviewed Jun 30, 2017

Overall Rating

We love this state park and we love Whidbey Island! Before our RV adventures we used to call this island home. Deception Pass is one of our very favorite state parks. Reason for 3 stars instead of 5?! We give it 3 stars due to the planes and the noise (at some point during the night we might have given it a 1 or 2 due to the planes). ... more
