We don't have any camping in Bellingham anymore! There used to be Wildwood Resorts outside of Bellingham off of Lake Whatcom, but they are now promoting the selling of cottages. With this said the place to go not far from the city would be Larrabee State Park.
Bellingham does have an RV park with full hook-ups, pet friendly, within 15 minutes of shopping, showers, laundry and is open all year.
Easy access off of I-5 and only an hour from Vancouver, BC.
Just a few miles south on Chuckanut Drive is Larrabee State Park. This is Washington's first state park! It includes 8,100 feet of shoreline on Samish Bay, hiking trails, 2 freshwater lakes, 59 camp sites, 26 RV hook-ups, 67 picnic sites, boat ramps and is open year around! Beautiful sunsets over the bay and plenty of places for beach combing. You can call 360-676-2093 for more details and make your reservations!

My husband and I have taken our family on many outdoor expeditions over the years. We never failed to forget something at home that we needed. I didn't want anything like that happen to you so I put together a checklist for you! Call me a "perfectionist", call me what you will, but don't call me if you forgot something you needed on this list!!!
The tent! (Unless you are Rving, of course...)
