The campground has drinking water, flush toilets and hot showers (coin operated).  There’s also a group beach shelter (175 person capacity) with two large BBQs. The picnic area includes 62 tables.

Each of the Bay View State Park cabins can accommodate up to 4 people. Each has a double bed and two single bunks. Pets are permitted in the cabins for an additional fee. Smoking is not allowed. Bed linens are not provided. Cooking is allowed in the kitchenettes. All cabins have electricity, but no restrooms/showers.

Bay View State Park has 1,285 feet of saltwater shoreline on Padilla Bay, one of 28 existing national marine estuaries. Also, on clear days, park users see the Olympic Mountains to the west and Mt. Rainier to the south. Outdoor activities include boating (boat ramp a few blocks away), canoeing, kayaking, fishing, hiking, biking, sail boarding, swimming, waterskiing, beach combing, metal detecting and wildlife viewing.

    We rented cabin 3 for 2 nights. Are the cabins heated and have electricity? Also, I have seen on some reviews that you have to pay to take a shower? Is this true? Is there water close to the cabins for drinking and cooking?
