“The place to go in Camas”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

This little lake has everything: amazing views, walking trails all around it, waterfalls (if you adventure a bit), and great picnicking areas. We take all visitors there and they just love it!

“Pretty for boating, I avoid swimming here...”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

It's get a lot of street run off so we avoid swimming here. Beautiful to just go out in the boat and ride around. Watch for the drunks though on a busy day... If you've never been here, the lake is long and kinda narrow. It's great because it's so close, but if you want to make a day of it and spend time swimming, I'd head north to Yale or Swift.

“Local secret”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

Probably no mystery to residents around Camas, but it took us from Vancouver a couple of tries to find the parking lots for Lacamas Lake. The spacious parking lot looks like a boat launch, and the sign for the park is well inside the perimeter. A second, smaller parking lot looks like it belongs to a private kayak/canoe rental business. Both lots access a mostly level trail around one side of the lake that starts out blacktopped and changes to gravel. Walkers and bikers traversed the trail on the weekday we tool our dogs for a (leashed) walk there. Looked like it could be busy on the weekends.
