One caution about Deception Pass that catches some folks by surprise, if the Whidbey Island Naval Air stations right across the bay are practicing their touch-and-go exercises with the Howler Jets, you will have a very noisy camp. "The sound of freedom" as they say. Unfortunately the Navy does not publish their schedule for obvious reasons so you can't predict if it will be noisy or not.
If the sound of jets overhead is not your thing, another option is to camp at Bayview State park just north of US20 before you get to Anacortes then take a day trip to Deception pass. Not nearly as scenic as Deception Pass but quieter.
Edit: if the jets are practicing, they start about 9:00 AM and quit about sunset.
