We had such a wonderful time at Cama Beach State Park back in July. It’s such a cool little gem of a state park, and I can’t wait to go back next summer. Who wants to come with us??!
Distance from Seattle: 1.5 hours
Accommodations: beachfront rustic cabins that contain beds, a medium size fridge to fit all your
beer food, sink, coffee pot, and microwave
Food: bring food that can be prepared in the microwave, on a portable camp stove, or the bbqs. Don’t miss the Cama Beach Cafe right up the hill in the park, which makes to-die-for giant cinnamon rolls.
Bathrooms: there’s a clean & modern bathhouse behind the cabins with sinks, toilets, and coin-operated showers
Things to do: hiking, play on the beach, go crabbing, play on the small playground, collect sea shells, do ranger-led activities like crafts, borrow books & puzzles from the camp store, buy ice cream from the camp store, rent a rowboat, ride bikes, kick a soccer ball, play horseshoes, and lots more!
Tips: Definitely call early for reservations. You have to call; there is no online booking system! Weekdays are easier to find availability than weekends. Bring bikes for the kids. Seriously, all the kids had their bikes and they rode happily in the rows between cabins. My kids had their bike helmets on practically the whole time! And don’t miss those cinnamon rolls!
Kid-friendliness: two big thumbs up! So great for the kids to unplug and be outside from sunrise to sunset
Overall: SOOOO fun! My most favorite trip we did all summer, and definitely on the list for next summer.
And, I made a little film that reminds me of this lovely little trip whenever I watch it.
Also in this series, berry picking at Remlinger.
