Cama Beach

I've been coming up here pretty regularly for a decade - I doubt there's another spot on the Sound that I know so well. It's been a while since my last visit - largely due to the construction activity. But now the cabins have all been painted and fixed up (and the ground raised so they don't float away during winter high tides) and the park is set to open in June. It all looks a bit too tidy and unvegetated at the moment, but time should take care of that.

Cama Beach is an old tourist camp, something once common on Puget Sound, but now all lost to long rows of 4000 square foot waterfront homes. State Parks has been working hard to capture this unique piece of history.
