Great little lake to drop your kayak in for a quick break from your week. Easy access...clean park area and well maintained. Walk path is well taken care of and offers about 7 miles out and back. The lake offers a boat ramp, and large area to drop in for paddlers. It is pretty scenic for being so close to... More

This is a beautiful place to walk and enjoy nature. You can take a short or a much longer hike depending on your energy level. It is beautiful anytime of year and with the changing seasons. Some of the best water in the area. You will love the time here.

Only minutes from my house, we come here often to take our dog for a walk and get some exercise. We love it, quiet and beautiful.

I love going to Lacamas Lake and riding the trails. There are a few interconnecting trails throughout the area. I like to go usually in the morning, and ride for a few hours. Kayaking on the lake is also a ton of fun!

This is a wonderful lake surrounded by awesome trails and Lacamas Park. The water is refreshing and clean-great for swimming. The trails are lovely taking one to experience gorgeous waterfalls and the beautiful creek. An incredible place for a city park.

Great time swimming at the lake with our kids! Required good life jackets for safety and not a lot of beach but there are a few spots to swim from including near the dock. Lots of folks out enjoying paddle boards that looked like a blast and we spent an hour or more splashing and swimming near the shore. Great... More

There's a big trail to follow, decent fishing, water sport rentals, playground, restrooms and docks. There's also lots of parking and pokestops for the gamers.

Lacamas Lake, is a wonderful spot! Close to the city but yet feels like you're away!! Have picnics, take a hike, watch the birds, rent a canoe/kayak, rent a paddle board, drop your boat, throw your air mattress out in the lake and relax or swing from the rope swing!! Did I mention you van have a BBQ out there... More

Lacamas Lake is beautiful with wild life that abounds. Sometimes, one can see deer crossing the lake, eagles, and ducks. A magnificent walking trail goes along the lake for a good cardio workout or leisurely stroll. During the summer, boaters, paddle boarders and the like can be found enjoying all the lake has to offer.

The lake is in a large regional park that is cross-crossed with beautiful hiking trails, deep fern filled forests and beautiful waterfalls. A great place to spend the afternoon.
