WDFW Beach Season Information

Clam, mussel, and oyster seasons CLOSED for harvest year-round for conservation. 

Declining clam populations at Camano Island State Park require a conservation closure since 2002. 

WDFW shellfish seasons indicate the specific times of year when harvesting is permitted. Before heading to the beach, please also check the Department of Health (DOH) information below which is related to health of the shellfish and may be updated daily. To harvest on this beach, it must be both during the WDFW approved season and approved by the DOH.

Harvest profile

Camano Island State Park is located at Lowell Point on Camano Island. Since 2002, Camano Island State Park has been closed to recreational clam harvest due to a dramatic decline in the abundance of native littleneck clams. Oysters are not expected to be common at this location.
