Bowman Bay/Deception Pass State Park Campground Professional Review and Guide
"Washington State Parks are seldom escapes from the crowds, and Deception Pass State Park is no exception to this. They are, however, almost always delightful escapes from the ordinary, and Deception Pass reigns supreme in this department.
The park encompasses 4,134 acres. There are 38 miles of hiking trails, 77,000 feet of saltwater frontage, and 33,900 feet of freshwater divided among four lakes. There are wetlands, sand dunes, interpretive trails, Native American stories, historical monuments, a saltwater fishing pier, and an astonishing array of wildlife, sea life, and birds."
