View of the Saratoga Pass at Camano Island State Park with a large tree on the left hand side in the forefront, mowed grass along the forefront of the photo, a wooden post-fence in the center of the photo, and the Saratoga Pass in the background. The sky is a light blue with some fluffy clouds and it appears to be a sunny day.
Entrance sign at Camano Island State Park. Trees are visible in the background as well as a road on the left hand side.
Two youths looking at marine life on rocks found on the beach at  Camano Island State Park. Youths are one Black child with red and black glasses, a green t-shirt, and blue pants and a white child with a backwards blue hat, blue or black t-shirt, and blue shorts. In the background are blurry classmates, the beach, and the Saratoga Pass.
Picnic shelter at  Camano Island State Park. The shelter has a green, metal-looking roof, dark brown wooden siding, 5 white windows along the left side that take up the entire left wall, a single window visible on the entrance side of the building and a large, white framed door visible. The building is next to a picnic table, grill, and visible wooden post fence. In the far background you can just make out the Saratoga Pass and land on the opposite side of the water.
 Camano Island State Park interpretive sign overlooking a rocky beach with visible driftwood, forested and developed land on the other side of the Saratoga Pass. The sign is for the Saratoga Passage Marine Stewardship Area. Much of the writing is too difficult to read.

Picnic and day use facilities

The North Beach picnic shelter is first-come, first-served and can accommodate a dozen people. 

The North Beach meadow, Lowell Point kitchen shelter, and amphitheater can be reserved for weddings, family reunions or other special events. The kitchen shelter has electricity, a wood stove and large windows with sweeping views of Saratoga Pass and Whidbey Island. It is an indoor-outdoor space and can accommodate up to 44 people inside and an additional 36 people outside. Check out the informational sheet (PDF 254KB) for more details.


There are 77 standard sites that you can reserve in advance and two hiker/biker sites are available first-come, first-served. A dump station, restrooms, and showers are located nearby. One primitive campsite is available first-come, first-served as part of the Cascadia Marine Trail, and you may camp here only if you arrive on human- or wind-powered watercraft. Sites 38-77 in the upper camping loop are pull-throughs and better suited for RVs up to 40 feet. Lower loop campsites are open year-round and the upper loop campsites are open from mid-May through mid-September. 

One group camp is available and can accommodate up to 100 people and 28 vehicles. The group camp has its own restrooms and showers.

For a cozier stay, reserve one of five forest cabins. Each cabin can sleep up to five people and has peek-a-boo views of the water.


Hike or bike four miles of trails that loop through the forest, or head down a one-mile trail that leads to Cama Beach Historical State Park.


There is one boat launch at this park. Make sure you have an annual launch permit or combination of a Discover Pass and daily launch permit.

The boat launch is located at Latitude: 48º 7' 39.37" N (48.1276) Longitude: 122º 29' 57.12" W (-122.4992).

Wildlife viewing

Numerous animals call this park home and wildlife viewing opportunities abound here. You may spot deer, rabbits, chipmunks, coyotes and skunks while hiking in the forest. Gaze out at the water and look for orcas, harbor seals, porpoises and gray whales. Look up to see eagles, herons, wrens, hummingbirds and owls swooping overhead.


    You can purchase firewood from the camp host or several grocery stores located on Camano Island. Please choose only wood sourced from western Washington to help us protect our forests from invasive insects.

    Interpretive activities

    Interpretive programs for kids and adults are held every Saturday during the summer. Check the display board at the campground entrance to see program hours. Take part in stargazing, giant bubble-blowing on the beach, arts and crafts, and guided shore and forest strolls. Listen to intriguing talks at the amphitheater ranging from the whales of Puget Sound to how your old shirt can save a salmon.

    The Center for Wooden Boats located at nearby Cama Beach Historical Park hosts toy boat building workshops year-round on Saturdays.
