Camano Island – Cama Beach, Initial Dev.

Category Overview

Washington is famous for its gorgeous and abundant waterways, from the Salish Sea to the Nisqually River, but many communities lack open public beaches and waterfronts where everyone can enjoy picnicking, swimming, paddling, boating, and angling. Water Access projects fund public shoreline access, boat launches, and fishing docks to create more opportunities for water recreation.

Project Highlights

This project will provide day use visitors to Cama Beach with facilities to meet basic shoreline access needs. The project includes parking areas, new trails and accessible routes of travel, a new day use area, gates, and signs. This project will provide the public with the first opportunity to revisit this popular beach area since the closure of the resort in 1988.
