Bellingham's Lake Whatcom is a beautiful timber lined freshwater lake nestled in the foothills between the shores of Puget Sound and magnificent Mount Baker.   Pacific Northwest Floatplane

Lake Whatcom is Washington's 4th largest freshwater lake stretching over 12 miles from end to end with the north shore in Bellingham and the southern most end in the laid back community of Sedro Woolley.     

The wooded shoreline around lake Whatcom is dotted with lakeside resorts, a summer camp, scenic parks and private homes-- everything from quaint summer cabins & rustic log homes, to majestic waterfront mansions with their very own docks.    

Lake Whatcom is stocked with fish each year by the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife.   The lake is popular for fishing, sailing, windsurfing, water skiing, kayaking & even canoeing.  -   Northwest families have been camping and vacationing along its shores for generations.               Lake Whatcom has a number of communities around its shores but one of the largest is the master planned lakefront community of Sudden Valley.  

This resort community has its own marina, boat ramp,  private beach access, and highly regarded golf course designed by Ted Robinson.
