Rhododendron County Park is located on Whidbey Island in Island County, Washington and contains a small campground. The distinctive feature of the park is that is filled with wild rhododendrons which fill the park with blooms underneath the forest canopy in late spring and early summer. Seeing the rhododendrons in bloom can help one understand why the rhododendron is the State Flower of Washington.

Amenities[edit]

The park has 15 non-reservable pay campsites with access to vault toilets, BBQ’s, picnic tables, fireplace rings, and potable water. The campground is closed from November 1 through April 1 annually. Day use features include 3 athletic fields, restrooms, playground, picnic shelter with BBQ, and an extensive trail system.

Location[edit]

The park's address is 502 W. Patmore Rd., Coupeville, WA, but some find it difficult to find. The park entrance itself is roughly one mile south of the stoplight on SR 20 in Coupeville, Washington at the northern edge of the county landfill and is only marked by a small white on brown campground symbol. While denoted as a state park in online maps, the park itself is a county park.
