State Parks grants help preserve and develop our state’s best outdoor recreation areas by funding new campgrounds and amenities to increase the capacity of our parks, creating new parks, improving park resources, and protecting historical areas. These grants help our state continue to develop our world-class parks system to share our cultural heritage and natural treasures with all of its visitors.
This project consists of the phased acquisition of the former Cama Beach Resort, located one-half mile north of Camano Island State Park. The site offers the opportunity to create a major new state park, providing a full range of recreational activities including fishing, shellfish harvesting, camping, environmental learning centers, and day use. Significant private donations by the landowner assisted this project.
