Cama Beach State Park

Cama Beach State Park is not an ordinary State Park. Most visitors here are renting one of the over two dozen recreated 1930s-era Puget Sound fishing resort cabins. These have been refurbished with modern conveniences and are available for rent year round to individuals and groups. This beach has been used by families for decades as a fishing resort and centuries before that by Native Americans. The cabins have nice views of Saratoga Passage, Whidbey Island and the Olympic Mountains. There is hiking, mainly along a mile of beach, the Rim Trail, Ivy Lane trail and a 3/4 mile trail to Cranberry Lake. Also, there is a one mile trail to nearby Camano Island State Park where you will find some more good hikes. There are trail signs throughout the park but bring a map for sure.
