Discover Birch Bay State Park, WA

The Pacific Northwest has an immense amount of outdoor places to explore, and when you search for an RV in Whatcom County, you’ll have easy access to all that the northwestern corner of Washington has to offer. Birch Bay State Park is a small state park that is a great starting point for your adventure. Its combination of sandy shores, rocky beaches, and breathtaking views of the North Cascade Mountains will amaze almost anyone.

As luck would have it, while camping at Birch Bay State Park, you’ll have easy access to both natural attractions and a few nearby cities, including the popular tourist destination Blaine and even Abbotsford, in Canada. Additionally, Birch Bay State Park borders Birch Bay, which in turn leads to the Strait of Georgia. This strait is a wonderful place to watch whales during their migration periods, take boating tours, and enjoy both fishing and crabbing at your leisure.

Getting Outdoors

Motorhome camping in this state park will enable guests to enjoy a large number of outdoor activities, all virtually outside your door during your stay. The most obvious and accessible of these outdoor activities is enjoying Birch Bay. This large bay is home to many different types of wildlife, both flora, and fauna. When you want to learn more information about the local wildlife, it is possible to speak with a ranger or attend an interpretive session.

Of course, given that the Strait of Georgia eventually connects to the ocean, Birch Bay is subject to tides. Don’t worry, these tides are in your favor and offer unique opportunities for new adventures. When you camp in an RV near Birch Bay State Park, be sure to grab a schedule of the tides so you’ll know the best time to go out and search for clams and other shellfish. Be sure to bring pails, shovels, mud boots, and especially licenses before you start digging.

The bay also offers a collection of unique water sport activities thanks to its waves and semi-secluded location. Vacationers at this state park can enjoy warmer water during the summer months, which are great for swimming. If simply floating in the water isn’t for you, then perhaps you’ll enjoy partaking in windsurfing, sailing, and paddling a variety of different watercraft like paddleboards, kayaks, and canoes.

Another easily accessible outdoor adventure when you are RV camping at Birch Bay State Park is the nearby Point Whitehorn. This destination can be reached on foot, by automobile, on a bike, or even on a kayak. Point Whitehorn is a great destination for hiking, especially since the trails in the park climb to a decent height and offer sweeping panoramic views of the Strait of Georgia.

Camping at Birch Bay State Park

It should be noted that because of the colder winters in this part of Washington, camping is only allowed between the middle of May through the middle of September. When camping is in season, however, Birch Bay State Park is a great place for adventure. There are 20 partial hookup sites that guests with an RV rental can use. These partial hookup sites can be reserved ahead of time, which isn’t a bad idea since there aren’t too many available.

It should also be noted that the max length for an RV at the park is 60 feet, which is simply because of space limitations. Many of the camping sites are set in a forested area that offers decent privacy, and there are community shared amenities for everyone to use. Eight restrooms serve the campground, one of which is ADA, and there are 18 showers, two of which are ADA. Additionally, the park has six different picnic shelters for guests to use on a first come, first served basis and 120 unsheltered picnic tables scattered throughout the campgrounds.

Exploring the Area

When you arrange for a rental motorhome at Birch Bay State Park, you’ll find that there are also plenty of activities to enjoy outside the state park itself. The nearby city of Birch Bay has a few different restaurant options to offer guests, including an American style diner, Italian, Chinese, and even Mexican varieties. Guests will also find that there are many different gas stations and convenience stores located in Birch Bay, which make it easy to refuel and refill on essentials during your trip.

For a water activity that isn’t as salty as the bay, head to Birch Bay Waterslides. This waterpark overlooks the bay and has many fast and fun water slides for guests to ride. Depending on the time of year the water temperature at the waterslide park may be far more enjoyable than the bay itself, making it a nice alternative when you still want to get wet. Near to the waterpark is the Birch Bay Village Golf Course, so if parents want to drop their appropriately aged kids at the water park then head out for a round of golf, it is all within a reasonable distance.

To learn more about the area when you are renting an RV in the area, head down to Bellingham and stop by the Whatcom Museum. This museum complex covers three different buildings that are filled with art, cultural objects, and artifacts that tell the history of the Northwest. There are always staff on hand that can answer most questions you have about the area, and interactive exhibits will keep the whole family entertained during your visit.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are RV rentals?

Renting an RV lets you enjoy the flexibility of RV travel without all the costs and maintenance of ownership. With a rental, you can book the perfect rig for any trip just like you would a car or hotel.

On average, you can expect to pay between $75 and $150 per night to rent most small trailers and campervans. Larger trailers and motorhomes could cost $100 to $250 per night. Renting an RV for a longer time can be even more affordable–a week or month-long rental could average out to less than $60 per day.

Are there RV rentals with unlimited mileage?

Yes! Each RV owner can choose whether to offer unlimited miles on their vehicles. You’ll be able to see if unlimited mileage is an option on any listing you check out. If unlimited miles are not available, you’ll be able to see what is included with the base rate and what extra miles will cost.

Are RV rentals pet-friendly?

Many RV owners allow pets in their rentals. Be sure to check the listing to see if it’s an option for the rig you have your eye on. You’ll be able to see if there is an extra deposit or fee for pets before you request a booking.

Do RV rentals offer delivery?

Are there RV rentals near me?

RV rentals are available all over the country! Whether you want to pick up an RV near home to set out an epic road trip or if you want to have one ready at your destination, you can search by location for any type of rig.

RV rental vs buying?

Renting an RV is an affordable way to get all the benefits of RV travel without the maintenance and overhead of ownership. It’s also a great way to try out the lifestyle and different types of rigs before you take the plunge and buy your own. Already own an RV? Consider renting yours out to bring in some extra income.
