Where Camano Island truly revels in all of its natural glory is its parks. The largest and most prominent are Cama Beach and Camano Island state parks. Located on the southwest shore of the island, Cama Beach State Park faces Saratoga Passage, the waterway serving as the connector between Whidbey Island, Camano and into Skagit Bay. Cama Beach preserves this unique site on over 433 acres of waterfront, with the renovation and modernization of a 1930s-era fishing resort. A multifaceted indigenous area, Cama Beach today offers boating, crabbing, scuba diving, fishing, swimming, hiking, horseshoes, wildlife viewing, lodging and 15 miles of trails. A historic boathouse is operated and run by The Center for Wooden Boats, a shop that offers boat rentals, from new to antique, sailing, crabbing rentals and boat- building classes.
A mile-long trail will lead hikers and curious travelers to the Camano Island State Park, the 173-acre camping park that boasts 6,700-feet of jagged rock shoreline and beach for day-trippers, hikers, bikers and shellfish harvesters. Enjoy hiking and biking trails, areas for boating and diving as well as clamming, crabbing and saltwater fishing. Swimmers are welcome along with personal watercrafts, which have access to two boat ramps and water-skiing. An amphitheater sits along a stunning background for bird watching and other wildlife viewing.
Cama Beach State Park was chosen as a winner on the 2016 Pacific Northwest A-List, as #3 for both Best Cabins and Best State Park!
