Camano Island is located about 90 minutes north of Seattle between Whidbey Island and the mainland, and is accessible via the Camano Gateway Bridge (about 6 miles west of Interstate 5). Windswept beaches, grand forests and views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains await island visitors.

For those who love to bond with nature, Camano Island offers the outdoor experience they are looking for. Stay at one of two state parks, try your hand fishing any time of year, or stroll the beaches on this island of unspoiled natural beauty.

Camano Island and surrounding areas are well known for their birding. Spot Trumpeter Swans, Bald Eagles and Great Blue Herons among the many feathered friends found here.
