Cama Beach is located on the southwest shore of Camano Island facing Saratoga Passage. Cama Beach offers visitors a chance to step back in time to a 1930s-era Puget Sound fishing resort complete with waterfront cedar cabins and bungalows. These have been refurbished, with modern conveniences added, and are available for rent year 'round to individuals and groups.  A 90-minute drive from Seattle, Cama Beach offers day and overnight visitors alike a time capsule experience.

Discover Pass: A Discover Pass is required for vehicle access to state parks for day use. For more information about the Discover Pass and exemptions, please visit the Discover Pass web page.

While at Cama Beach you can explore the expansive shoreline, gaze at beautiful sunsets, view an array of wildlife, hike or bike the area’s 15 miles of trails, take in a boating workshop with the Center for Wooden Boats or just relax in a cozy historic cabin that offers the best of both worlds - the feel of earlier times and the ease of modern conveniences.

Cama Beach Historical State Park is set in a spectacular, 433-acre waterfront location against a forested backdrop. It is connected by a mile-long trail to Camano Island State Park, a 134-acre camping park. Both parks are open for day use or overnight stays year 'round.
