The Grand Opening of the new Cama Beach State Park, located on the southwest side of Camano
Island, was celebrated the weekend of June 21, 2008, "The First Day of Summer". It
excitingly follows a legislative decision in 1998 to cut State expenses by closing 42
Washington State Parks. Several of our own Club members (along with other members of our
community) have spent
the past several years using their skills to work on and ready the Park for its Grand Opening.
Cama Beach State Park is completely booked through
Labor Day and every weekend into October 2008. In fact, Washington State Park Reservations
are booking reservations two years in advance. For more information or Park Reservations call 360-387-1550.
