We had the pleasure of finding a campground over the weekend at Camano Island State Park in Washington State. There are actually two state parks that we looked at for camping in Northern Puget Sound. Camano Island and Cama Beach. Camano Island State Park is the only one where you can drive in for a first-come-first-serve campground while Camano Island State Park has cabins only. I'm more of a camping guy so the choice was clear.

The publicly owned state park is about 68 miles north-west of Seattle. It has 173 acres of recreational area and over 1 mile of rocky beach shore. You could possibly spot whales and or eagles in the protected area. There are also several trails that swing around through dense forests and all the way down to the shoreline.

The campground's upper loop is perched a few hundred feet above Lowell Point and the accessible south beach of Camano Island State Park. The lower loop, which is open year-round, has a few sites with great views of the Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains.

We camped at the upper loop, which is more primitive but quiet and it still retains the sense of being near the water. There's five well-kept cabins, an amphitheater, and a group campsite with a modern bathroom.
Adventurers passing through the Cascadia Marine Trail can use the exclusive campsite down on south beach. The marine trail is made for human and wind-powered vessels only and goes from the southern inlets of the Puget Sound all the way through the Canadian Border.
I highly recommend checking it out if you're ever in the Pacific Northwest.
