As you can see from our sig, that's home territory for us. The State Parks around here are quite good. Within 10 miles of Anacortes there are two - Deception Pass SP and Bayview SP. There's a really nice commercial park, where we had our first Meet and Greet, called Pioneer Trails. The Swinomish Tribal Casino also has RV facilities and the City of Anacortes has a campground at Washington Park, about 3/4 mile from the State ferry terminal. There's also a park that's run by the Samish Tribe. It's called "Fidalgo Bay Resort. It's strongly oriented to big rigs, and the sites aren't separated from each other very far. It is in a great spot, overlooking the Bay.
Taking an RV on the ferry to the islands is really expensive. I'd recommend doing day trips with the toad. It's been a few years since we took our 26' Class C to Orcas Island, and the round trip fare was about $120.
