“ 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

“Great park, decent sites.”

Reviewed Mar 22, 2017

Overall Rating

We absolutely love Deception Pass. As WA natives we have an affinity for this area. We didn't quite know how well our 40ft trailer would handle going through the loop and backing in, but we lucked out and just kept it straight back after wrapping around a bend. A shorter trailer backed into a tree or a rock in a more complicated spot. ... more

“Beautiful spot, but noisy and complicated fee structure”

Reviewed Nov 02, 2015

Overall Rating

Deception Pass is exceptionally beautiful and the beaches here are amazing. From the campground you can walk to the shore and to the bridge to get stunning views of the pass. The campground itself is just OK. It would benefit from taking some of the sites out, because you are really crammed in here like sardines. Some big rigs will ha... more

“Pretty and lots to do, but the jets can be a pain”

Reviewed Sep 15, 2015

Overall Rating

I stayed in the Lower Forest Loop, way up at the Northern tip of the main campground. From there a "fair" 3G Verizon signal can be had. We used a booster to squeak in a 4G signal. The further up the hill (north) the better, but risky no matter where you stay in the park. The park itself was nice, clean, and had a lot to do around. B... more

“Wonderful park and campground, indelibly marred by extreme jet fighter noise”

Reviewed Jul 04, 2015

Overall Rating

This is a beautiful state park, right at the northern tip of Whidbey Island. The campground here is wonderful. Everything about this place says, "Camp here!" That is, until the EA-18G Growlers from nearby Whidbey Island Naval Air Station scream by at extreme low altitudes. We were there for three nights and every single night, we... more

“Don't Let the Airplane Noise Scare You Away!”

Reviewed Oct 06, 2014

Overall Rating

This place is absolutely worth the noise of the jets flying over from the nearby airbase. It's beautiful! Hiking trails, driftwood forts on the beach, kayking (rentals available during the summer). We loved our time here! While the reservation system is not ideal, and there are different types of sites with variable rates, we manag... more
