Larrabee State Park is a state park in Washington, located six miles (10 km) south of the city of Bellingham. It was the first state park to be created in Washington.

The park features a short walk down to a pebble beach with views onto Samish Bay and the San Juan Islands.

History[edit]

Larrabee State Park had its beginnings in 1915, when the Larrabee family donated 20 acres of land to the state with the intent that it be made into a park. In 1923, the new park was officially named after Charles Xavier Larrabee.
