“A Blast from the Past”

Cama Beach State Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 29, 2013

We didn't stay overnight here but just dropped in for the day. There is a small charge for that because it is a State Park. We went on a beautiful wooded hike that had a couple of overlooks. We ended the hike at a lovely beach. The beach is of the stony variety with lots of wildlife on it and looks over a wide vista.\ that includes Whidbey Island. What we liked most about it was that it was very nostalgic. It was an old fishing resort with these quaint little cabins and had one of those old signs made of branches hanging over the entrance. A small store contained an even smaller "museum" where you could look at old photographs of the site. There was also a boathouse where wooden boats were being restored and where you could rent all sorts of boats.

Our impression was that it was definitely kid-oriented. There were lots of them riding their bikes and playing on the beach. So, it is not for people that want an adult-oriented experience. We saw fairly small cabins, many by the waterfront. where adults were happily drinking beer and grilling. Very ideal for families that want their kids to get a genuine old-fashioned vacation at a resort.

We stopped to eat our lunch and were pleasantly surprised. Absolutely gorgeous park and we can't wait to go back and spend some more time there! Beautiful views of the sound and Whidbey Island, boats going by, all sorts of sea life on the beach, just wonderful!

The cabins are very rustic, and close together. You will enjoy this campground with kids. The view is incredible and the Wooden Boathouse rental shop is cool. Great place, fantastic staff. The camp is clean and very well maintained. We will be back, even in yucky weather. Storms might be real fun to watch out there. Thanks for the great time.

Cama Beach offers an interesting twist on the usual state park experience. Because of its history as a privately-owned fishing camp, it offers tiny little cabins right on the water for very reasonable prices. Yes, they are cosy with beautiful hand-made quilts on the beds, but they include only a refrigerator, microwave and sink--no bathrooms! But the bathhouse is a few steps away with pay showers; it's kind of the summer camp experience without bossy counselors telling you what to do! There is also a camp store, playground, and a working Center for Wooden Boats on the premises, where frequently you can watch (and help) folks restoring some antique wooden boats of all sizes! Some other options beside the waterfront cabins include "deluxe" cabins which have a bathroom and shower, and two larger "bungalows" with two bedrooms and all the fixings. A unique experience for either overnight campers or day use. No cars in the waterfront area; a shuttle bus brings you down from the parking lot above. There is also a beautiful event center for rent, natural logs and stone fireplace with another gorgeous view--with meeting rooms and a small cafe with breakfast and lunch menus. It truly is a step back in time!
