I grew up in Camas so going to Lacamas Lake has always been a staple of my childhood. The water is great for kayaking and stand up paddle boarding, although I wouldn't suggest swimming or fishing because the water has been polluted over the years. The lake is big enough to jet ski, water ski, wake board, or inner tube,... More

Great place to kayak and sup. Easy access and very smooth water if you go over to adjacent Round Lake. If you do not have your own you can rent from Sweetwater sup rentals.

Love that it is hard gravel and not pavement so its nice on your knees. It can get a little crowded with joggers. Everyone has been nice letting our dog swim off leash without yelling. Great easy slow in for the dog. It is her favorite lake. Can walk to two other lakes - Round and Fallen Leaf. Nice views... More

Great trails around Lacamas Lake, and there are basic signs to guide you, but there are many forks that do not tell you how to go. It became frustrating, I got lost 4 times. The Camas Lily Meadow was worth coming for! The spring flowers are out and worth getting lost for. Will come back again now that I know... More

The hiking around this area was great! It was so pretty and clean, just all over a great experience. There were lots of runners and people walking their dogs. Everyone in the area is so nice. The scenery was awesome, really it is! Coming from San Diego you just don't see forests like this. The waterfall, bridge, all of the... More

Lacamas Lake offers a bit of peace and beauty within the metro area. Boating options of course, but bike and pedestrian trails are wonderful. Eventually, the trail is to connect around the entire lake.

From fishing to waterskiing, this lake has lots to offer. I was surprised to find this large lake right in town when I first moved to the area 10 years ago.

Two lakes, a playground, picnic areas all over plus a damn spouting water and at least four water falls accessible by hiking trails. All this set in beautiful northwest forests. There is even one area set aside for wild flowers. Hiking is my favorite way to see all the sites in the park but you can bike just as easily.
