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

Love visiting this beach and often bring visitors here. Lots of driftwood and a great walking beach!

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

Just a beautiful beach and usually a lot of waterfowl and birds to see! Great relaxing spot any time of year. Parking is a bit limited however.

When visiting Iverson Beach, there are always two options: the "Hobbit Trail" or the sandy beach. The Hobbit Trail winds through brush, trees, and small ponds (roughly a mile walk) giving opportunity to see various wildlife. The best part could be the variety of birds one can see while out. A friend of ours had never seen a bald eagle... More

We actually go to the spit and walk the various trails, typically a one mile loop that includes a walk on the top of the dike, some marsh/wetlands, the toe of a slope area and crossings of various drainage channels along the way. That trip is approximately just shy of one mile, but you can also cross the dike in... More
