Camano Island is a large island in Puget Sound located between the mainland and Whidbey Island. The island is accessible via the Camano Gateway Bridge and is an unspoiled paradise with rolling hills, a rarely crowded shoreline, a rich array of wildlife in ancient evergreen forests, a big sky with bald eagles, and blue herons strolling along the beach. The island has two state parks: Camano Island State Park, a 134-acre camping park covered in protected forest with a rocky beach, hiking trails, fishing, boating, and scuba diving, and Cama Beach State Park, which has lovely small beach, charming restored cabins, and long trails through the forests. A popular tourist destination, Camano is famous for its numerous festivals, from the Port Susan Snow Goose and Birding Festival in February to the Spring Art Show in June to the Stanwood–Camano Chili & Chowder Cookoff in November.
