Deception Pass Bridge

The Pacific Northwest offers so much to do, and Whidbey Island is at the center of it all!

From North Whidbey RV Park, a short walk into Deception Pass State Park will take you to 30 miles of hiking trails, 19 miles of saltwater shoreline, a freshwater swimming beach, scuba diving, saltwater and freshwater fishing, and spectacular views.

Fine dining, nine hole golf course, Putt-putt golf, gift shops, and convenience stores are all within a two block walk. There is also a marina with saltwater boat launch for the crabbers and fishermen about 1.5 miles farther down Cornet Bay Road from our park.
