Local Information for Camano Island
It's "the island you can drive to!" Camano Island hangs off the edge of the Washington mainland 55 miles north of Seattle like a giant, green parenthesis. Unlike the more developed San Juan Islands to the north, you won't have to wait for a ferry here. Yet, despite Camano Island's accessibility, it's generally unspoiled. Surrounded by Saratoga Passage to the west, Skagit Bay to the north, and Port Susan to the east, the island is naturally isolated and is protected even further by two State Parks within its boundaries. Little wonder, then, that loyal visitors to Camano Island swell the population each summer to enjoy a pristine island environment free of glitzy tourist traps. Carpeted with majestic evergreen forests and rimmed by 56 miles of pristine beaches, Camano Island is 39.7 square miles of unadulterated Pacific Northwest beauty and abundance.
