Lake Whatcom is a 12 mile long fresh water lake due east of Bellingham with the northern most part of the lake actually within the Bellingham city limits. Wildwood Resort enjoys an ideal setting at the south end of beautiful Lake Whatcom with the look and feel of a summer camp you may have visited as a child. This restful lakeside resort is very family friendly and a great choice for those that enjoy water-skiing, swimming, or canoeing.
To celebrate a birthday with family and friends, we booked a few sites at this park. This is one that is operated outside of the Washington State Parks Department, so we weren't sure what to expect. As we understand, this park offers year round spots for individuals wanting to leave their trailers / rv's etc. at one park to come back and forth to. Then, there are some rental cottages, along with some camping spots like the few we reserved. It was ok. A wide mix of individuals camping - and I say that because I've never experienced the "leave your trailer here and commute back and forth to it" type of park. But it was fine, and enabled us to have visitors, hang out and celebrate a big birthday of mine!
As seen in the photo, we just had side by side campsites right in the middle of the grass, a bit off the shoreline. It was fine - and as you can see it allowed us to park our campers so our awnings lined up next to each other allowing us to have a nice area to hang out in.
There was a nice sandy beach, and grass leading up to it for the kids to play. The lake was quite cold and not many swimmers were enjoying the roped off area.
If I remember correctly, as this was a trip we took before the idea of this website came about, this park offers a little store that offers ice cream, fishing bait, etc. There are also a few shelters for rent and big areas of grass for playing games.
Sedro Wooley is the closest town to this park.
Bikes or No Bikes?
Not needed at this park. Easy walk around the park and really the location is off a main windy road so I don't think bikes would be ideal on that road.
