Virtual Exhibit of the Cama Beach
Historical Photograph Collection
the late 1990s, when Cama Beach Resort on the west side of Camano
Island was sold to Washington State Parks, historical photographs and
some of the artifacts found at the resort at that time were donated by
Karen Hamalainen & Sandra Worthington (owners) to the Stanwood
Historical Society. This online exhibit features a searchable
database of the Cama Beach historical photographs to learn more about
what it was like in the 1930s, 40s and 50s when resorts were a large
part of the Stanwood Camano local economy. Many of the
photographs were on the wall of the resort store for over 60 years
showing fish catches, boating and other activities at the resort. This
exhibit is a work in progress - updates and improvements are planned,
contributions of information, personal accounts and more photographs
are always welcome, especially those that might include boathouse
Beach State Parks or Center
for Wooden Boats staff.
