Breakfast at diners, or even at fast food places, are cheap and quick. For lunch we get a sub. For dinner we typically get something at a grocery store along the way, and eat it at camp.
I'm thinking that starting out on that same day could be complicated so I'm wondering where to rent a room....or should we hit the road for 20 miles or so?Bay View State Park is about 13 easy miles from Anacortes, and you will have plenty of daylight. Sounds like a reasonable way to get you "feet wet," and means fewer miles the next day. Don't recall any grocery stores near the park. Closest was in Burlington, which is 8 miles each way. As such, you might want to carry from Anacortes. Howard Miller Steelhead County Park in Rockport has Adirondack shelters. They come in handy if it's been raining.
