This has been our go to place on the island for intimate or family picnics. It is ideal for beach walks, building driftwood forts, playing family games and especially barbecuing. The view of Saratoga Passage and across to Whidbey Island is fantastic as is watching...More
Beautiful beaches and park! Photo-ops abound here, especially the golden autumn foliage in full display! We spotted a few elegant cranes and seagulls there. The beach is very accessible from the parking lot with well-maintained trails. The park also has a brand new restroom building...More
Hiking there with a bunch of friends is super! The fog never really lifted, but that didn't dampen our spirits. The madrona trees were reaching out into the water, hope they stay there for a while. Nice trails, covered with leaves this time of year....More
We did a little road trip to explore Camano Island - and stumbled across the Camano Island State Park...it was quite pretty there and was not busy at all considering it was a long weekend. Would probably like to come back one day to do...More
My family was invited to a HS graduation party for the daughter of one of my wife's friends, as they had rented a small party building on the beach for the party. I had never been to Camano Island or the state park so had...More
We stopped in to do some hiking, and this was a good location for a beach hike. The beach is stoney, so you need decent shoes.
It is best to park at the lower lot, since the upper lot requires you to use a stair...More
If you love hiking in the woods, this is a pleasant place for easy/moderate hikes. The beach is rocky and usually windy so it's not a beach destination except for observing nature, skipping rocks or communing with the sea. In winter, it can be a...More

Yes they only have 5 cabins. You may want to look into Cama beach state park next door. They have 24 cabins on the beach, but only a few are pet friendly. Some are ADA accessible also. These cabins are right on the beach.

Hi All, what's the chance of sighting whales/ orcas from Camano Island State Park this time of the year? Where is the bestspot to do so? Thank you. Kenny

Chances are very slim. Even the local pods move and it generally means being very lucky to be in the right place at the right time. I know a lot of people who have seen Orcas from Lime Kiln State Park on San Juan Island. Again it involves a lot of luck hoping to see them from land at any given time or place.
Camping at Camano Island State Park (4 Replies)
We're planning a trip in July and would like to camp at Camano Island State Park on a Monday night. We wouldn't be there until seven or eight in the evening and the campground is first come first serve and there's a notice on the park's website that one of the loops is closed However, I've also read that this is a less busy park for the area. Anyone have any thoughts on the likelihood of us snagging a spot?

What is your backup plan in case you get there at night, and the campground is full?
