The Iverson Spit Waterfront Preserve offers a little for everyone. It is a 120 acre area of protected coastline that has been undergoing a restoration project since 2011. There are walking trails, birding trails, marshes, views of the Cascades, sandy beaches, tidal pools, and vast areas of driftwood to explore. You can bundle up and walk in the winter or... More

This is a nice beach on Camano Island with several recreation options: birding, swimming, kayaking, hiking (try the hobbit trail), beach combing and kite boarding. I have been coming here since I was a boy and have always had a good time. Camano island is a nice place to spend a day.

Iverson Spit is one of the loveliest beaches on Camano. We go there (we live on the island) several times a year. We love its long expanse of sandy shore and the wild straggles of driftwood piled up everywhere from the seasonal tides and storms. A great place to walk your dog, access is easy and there's a small parking... More

We stayed for a week in one of the beach houses on Iverson Beach and walked a few times down to the Preserve. So, we did not use the parking areas that other reviewers have referenced. Iverson Beach Road, however is quiet and there are a few pull offs at the end of it. We visited the Preserve in high... More

My family and I took a day trip to Camano Island and Iverson Beach was our first stop. We arrived around 11 am and were able to find a parking spot but the lot is very small and I'm sure it was hard to get a spot later in the day. We walked out to the beach, what a beautiful... More

The sand is reasonably hard and its easy to walk a great distance at low tide. Not the easiest place to find, however. Be sure go below the speed limit to the parking area -- weekends on the island are all about families and folks are all over the place on the road leading to the Preserve.

This is a great area for a picnic, walk through the trails and also a nice flat beach access when the kids can play in the warm waters of Port Susan.

The secret's already out, so I won't hold back. This beach is a great place to take your family and spend the day playing in the warm salt water, relaxing in the sun, or walking down the several miles of paths (there's even a Hobbit trail). Parking can be limited on weekends, and the preserve lies near a small waterfront... More

My daughter took her 2 year old to play with other preschoolers, so I walked the beach for exercise. This is a nondescript beach on the Port Susan side of Camano Island. It gets the sunrise, it is mostly sand and muck, there is ample beach on which to turn the kids loose, but it lacks the character of the... More
