Birch Bay Washington Is Northwest Washington's Seaside PlaygroundBirch Bay Washington

The City of Birch Bay Washington has long been a favorite seaside getaway for northwest families for generations. The wide crescent shaped bay waterfront and Birch Bay Waterslides attract thousands of seasonal visitors eager to hang out and enjoy being by the sea shore. Accommodations in Birch Bay vary from quaint area motels, condos, to rustic camping and powered RV campsites in Birch Bay State Park.   

Birch Bay State Park offers camping, hiking trails, seasonal fishing, crabbing, clamming, and wildlife viewing. Camp sights are first-come first-served part of the year but in the busy season during the summer months campsites can be reserved via the Washington State's park system website. There are powered and non-powered sites that can accommodate large trailers and Motorhomes however there are a minimum number of powered sites and these sites offer little to no privacy compared to many of the other wooded campsites. 

Birch Bay Waterslides - The wettest and wildest waterslide park in Northwest Washington is a perennial favorite and major attraction to this seaside resort town. The park features 4 giant slides including 6-story water speed.(2013 Admission to the Birch Bay Water Park is $12.95 for children ages 3-5 and $19.95 for ages 6 & up - Open Seasonally). Located at 4874 Birch Bay Lynden Road - Phone: (360) 371-7500

Birch Bay Washington is as popular today as ever with new condominiums and homes continuing to pop up everywhere you look along Birch Bay's waterfront. There are also a number of new Birch Bay developments inland offering exciting new homes with appealing floor plan.     Birch Bay Zip Code : 98230

Enjoying A Camp fire Birch Bay & Birch Bay Village

Traveling north through the Birch Bay State Park you then enter the small village of Birch bay itself where you will find seaside restaurants, shops, and small B&B's. Near the middle of town there is a small liquor store in the same complex as the Shores Restaurant and further down the waterfront and one block east on Birch Bay Lynden Rd. is the popular waterslide park.

Continuing to the north side of the bay is the gated marina and golf course community of Birch Bay village offering waterfront cottages and residences.
