Camano Island vacation rentals

Art, history, and countryside on Camano Island

Dog leg-shaped Camano Island is a taster of the wild side of the Puget Sound, conveniently connected to the WA mainland by a narrow bridge on its north-eastern edge. Sandy beaches and low hills clad in fir forest fringe its long and winding shoreline, creating a playground for walkers and bikers and horse riders. Meanwhile, the Camano Island vacation rentals that pepper its rustic backcountry are interspersed with hearty Washington wine cellars and intriguing historical sites dating back to the age of the pioneers, while a smattering of independent local art fairs and galleries add a fun cultural twist to boot.

Spot all sorts of creatures on Camano Island

Whether you are whale watching from the shores above the Saratoga Passage – both gray whales and killer whales are known to appear here – or spying out bald eagles in the coastal state parks, you can rest assured that you're going to see some of the creatures that make the Puget Sound such a great eco destination. Apart from that, there's always the hiking trails, the adrenaline-pumping zip lines, the canopy walks in the spruce groves, the beaches, the panoramic picnic spots, the seaside camping pitches, the local wineries – the list goes on.

Wonderful parks and wonderful wines on Camano Island

A duo of excellent state parks is what keeps many outdoorsy types flocking back to Camano Island vacation rentals each year. There's the Camano Island State Park with its pebble beaches and ancient pockets of woodland. There's the Cama Beach State Park, where rustic huts rub shoulders with empty coves and whale-peppered seas. Apart from those, you've always got the al fresco sculpture gardens of Matzke Art Gallery to wonder at, and the Edward Lynne Cellars for tasting those Washington red and white wines.

Comfy summers in Camano Island

With all its beaches, pebble coves, and woodlands, Camano Island is at its best during the warmer, drier months of the year. Be sure to dodge the wet and shivering Pacific Northwest wintertime, which runs from around November to the end of March each year. Book Camano Island vacation rentals for April and May to see the first spring blooms, or go for a trip between June and September if you want to catch the beach parks and wineries in full swing. Meanwhile, a fall trip in October can mean great bargains and empty trails all to yourself.

Camano Island is encompassed by the Puget Sound

Camano is one of the many stepping-stone islands that pepper the Puget Sound off the mainland coast of Washington State. It's got lots of the geographical features common to the region: sweeping dashes of fir forest, long stretches of pebbly beachfront, rugged, rock-ribbed cliffs that drop down to a brooding, icy ocean. And talking of the ocean, you can often see the likes of sea lions, orcas, gray whales, and stalking seabirds from the lookouts of the various state parks here.
