This is a lovely lake, with lots of parking, and an easy boat ramp for paddle boards or kayaks. We were there on a very windy day, which made paddling a challenge, but kept a lot of other people off the lake (which was a plus). It's hard to believe that it's only a short drive from Portland -- feels... More

We went to Lacamas Lake to cool off and escape the Portland Heat! Round Lake is so quiet! Lots of family friendly hiking and biking trails. BBQ's and picnic spots. We hiked to the back of the lake and found a swim spot all to our selves! We did not see any motorized boats on this lake. Lots of fishing... More

The new remodel in the East end of the lake is very nice with the new lodge, dock, etc. I enjoy the walking trails around the lake with my four legged friend. Well maintained trails. Folks actually pick up after their pets. Limited access to the lake itself unless you have a boat or want to fish off the dock... More

LaCamas Lake and the adjoining Round Lake are little jewels in the city. The entire LaCamas Park is amazing with its miles and miles of trails in the woods.

Lacamas Lake in Camas is a beautifully maintained family and dog friendly park, and offers the visitor sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of the nearby cities. There are multiple access points, miles and miles of trails, picnic areas, and ample parking.

I often walk my dog on the trails at Lacamas. There is a nice park at one end for children. In the warmer months there are kayaks to rent. I highly recommmend renting them when you can as they're a lot of fun. I love watching the lake, observing the ducks and geese who gather there. It really is a... More

There are picnic tables and bbq's where one can bring your family for a nice outing. There are places to fish all around the lake. You can bring your... More

I really enjoyed the location close to downtown Camas. It's a little bit of nature so accessible and well cared for, overall. There were overflowing trash cans following a busy weekend, and some lesser-traveled areas did have quite a bit of rubbish, but overall the main trail is free of trash and a very nice stroll. highly recommended if you...

The lake offers a trail to hike on. A little chilly in January, but bundled up it wasn't to bad. Went with a friend and she was impressed!
