A quiet retreat, or heart-pumping adventure?
Camano Island has it all!
"Camano is just a one-hour drive from downtown Seattle but feels like a world away"
Camano Island makes up the other wall of the corridor that is Saratoga Passage. For many years a hidden gem and quiet artists’ getaway, this island is experiencing a renaissance, attracting new residents who’ve discovered how convenient this slice of paradise really is.
Camano Island - The Easy Island!
Camano Island is just a one-hour drive from downtown Seattle but feels like a world away and is reached by bridge from the neighboring city of Stanwood.
You might be surprised to find that this island can offer meeting facilities for small groups up to nearly two-hundred people! For an intimate gathering check out the Camano Island Inn, a nine-room haven set along a private beach, with three meeting rooms and a farm to table bistro.
You’ll also be able to enjoy the onsite spa, gardens, and trails of the property, or guest rooms which include private waterfront balconies and jetted hot tubs.

Beachfront Walking Trails
For a larger group try the Four Springs House, the Camano Center or Cama Beach State Park. Four Springs is situated within a fifty-acre nature preserve, with trails available for walks and solitude during your break times.
With three indoor meeting spaces and one outdoor, Four Springs house can accommodate meetings and events from 10 to 160 people.
The Camano Center is a modern meeting facility with both a large hall and a smaller meeting room. With plenty of parking, an inviting lobby and wide hallways for vendors, there is a modern meeting feel wrapped inside a rustic exterior.
Cama Beach State Park was once a family resort for people to get away from the city and enjoy fishing, boating, and campfires on the beach. Their cabins have been updated for comfort but still hold the charm of a bygone era, and there are three meeting spaces available for groups from 35 to 175 people. The largest, The Cama Center's great hall is a modern facility, built only a few years ago. Each of these meeting spaces boasts enviable views of Saratoga Passage, Whidbey Island, and the Olympic Mountains.
Camaloch Golf Course on Camano Island
If a thrill-seeking team building adventure is what you’re after, Camano Island is also home to NW Canopy Tours, which has been voted Best Zipline in the Northwest! Located on the historic Kristofferson Farm, this property is owned and operated by a local family with deep ties to Camano going back over 100 years. They offer six ziplines through gorgeous northwest forest, as well as a Terra Teams course designed to achieve your aim whether that be communication, problem-solving, team bonding or just fun.
Camano is a haven for artists of all kinds. For twenty years the island has offered a very popular open studio tour in May, but all year round you’ll find galleries and work spaces open by appointment. There’s also the year-round Matzke Sculpture Park, featuring work from prominent and emerging sculptors.
If you only have time for a quick stop, check out Camano Commons at Terry’s Corner, where you’ll find local art, food, and gifts before your return to the mainland.
