Beautiful Cama Beach State Park

Cama Beach State Park, which is over 38 acres in size, has become one of the top destinations on Camano Island.  Cama beach was once a fishing resort from 1934 - 1989.  The risk daughters took over the property in 1990 and turned it into a park.The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission began acquiring land through a combination of family donation and sale in 1994. Over the years, Cama Beach has improved there park for year round availability.   The cabins were recently refurbished with modern conveniences added.  Since this is a state park, a discovery pass is required.


While at Cama Beach, you can explore the expansive shoreline, gaze at beautiful sunsets, view an array of wildlife, hike or bike the area’s 15 miles of trail, and take in a boating workshop with the Center for Wooden Boats, or just relax in a cozy historic cabin that offers the best of both worlds, the feel of earlier times and the ease of modern conveniences.

Cama Beach State Park is set in a spectacular, 433-acre waterfront location against a forested backdrop. It is connected by a mile-long trail to Camano Island State Park, a 134-acre camping park. Both parks are open for day-use or overnight stays year-round.

Today, the park store is once again the hub of activity at the park. Visitors can purchase a variety of supplies at the store, including snacks, groceries, and souvenirs. Catering arrangements can be made there for special gatherings.

The store also is home of Beach Watch, a non-profit organization with volunteers who are eager to answer questions about the park and help visitors enjoy their time at Cama Beach.
