All I can say is really keep an eye on the weather at the Siskiyou Summit Pass. They're getting snow right now and it's not unusual to get snow right through April: KDRV.com | Snow for the Siskiyou Summit Pass

Hi Bill
This looks like a beautiful campground! They do not start taking reservations until May. Coming from Southern California I find it hard to believe all campgrounds will not be full during the week before Easter (Spring Break)! Campsite photos shows no hookups. I will call tomorrow to see what our chances are if we just show up. Did you take exit 250?
I like the idea of leaving midmorning to miss Seattle traffic.
Thanks
Mary and Kevin

Thank you Donna
I added your link to my bookmarks. We will keep an eye on the weather. Hopefully there is a break so we can get to Chilliwack!

Larrabee is a cool state park. It is very close to the rail tracks and the road south from Fairhaven after you turn off at Exit 250 is a somewhat narrow 2 lane.

We had hookups in our site T14 (see photo) which is a back-in site. The back-in sites had trees around them while the pull-through sites were in a row without trees. The park web site says their 26 "utility" sites have full hookups.

We exited on state route 11. Our GPS told us to turn left, but stay on Rt 11 until it turns left which is a much better road. Yay, GPS.

Any recommendations? Will reservations he needed this time of year? It is the week before Easter and I know I would need them in California!
Hi Mary and Kevin, we are picking ours up that week also. We have reservations at the Linden KOA. Lynden, Washington Campground | Lynden / Bellingham KOA
It's hardly a drive from the border and you may want to get down the road a bit farther than that. But we wanted to be close for a couple of days in case we run into problems.
Happy trails!

This must be a nice campground! It is almost completely booked! There are a few sites still available. If the timing works out I will make a reservation.
Thank you

It is a nice campground in an agricultural area and very close to Portland. If you need a Portland city fix, it is a short drive into the city.
