The park has a large field for ball games in the day-use area. An 18-hole golf course is located near the park on Camano Island.
Check Fish and Game regulation booklet and local papers for season dates of clamming, crabbing and fishing. A recreational license is required for fishing and shellfish harvesting at Washington state parks. For regulations, fishing season information or to purchase a recreational license, visit the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife website.
NOTE: Due to an unexplained die off of clams in the Port Susan/Saratoga Passage area, Washington State Parks, in cooperation with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, has closed harvesting during clam season at Camano Island State Park. This is a temporary measure to assure recovery of the clam population and future recreational harvest.
