We will be in Whidbey Island in Mid June. Any recommendations on;

  • Where to stay? We have a 33' trailer and only over a weekend - hookup is not needed. We need to visit someone on the South end of island, so I'm thinking Deception Pass may be too far north.
  • Where is a good clam beach? Mainly looking for Manila clam or like

Check out Fort Casey. Outside of Coupeville. Not too far from Oak Harbor (also has a nice city park downtown) and Langley. The ferries dock right across from the park. Nice beach and you can watch the ships come and go through the straits.

If you haven't been to Deception Pass it is well worth the time to see. It is beautiful !! I was stationed at Oak Harbor way back in the 50s

I believe that there is a park right on the water at the North end of town

Deception Pass State Park is well over 40 miles from Freeland which is in the south center of the Island, not what you could call close.

Is Deception Pass the driveable entrance to Whidbey? I've been to Whidbey several times do not recall if I drove once? I do recall the pass, it is beautiful. Saw my first Bald Eagle there.

Ferry costs would be unbearable for a 35; with a toad.
