Camas

Officially incorporated in 1906, Camas was named after the camas lily. Historically, the commercial base of the city was the paper mill; however, more recently, an influx of several high-tech companies including Hewlett-Packard, Sharp Microelectronics, Linear Technology and WaferTech, have located there. This city of 17,950 is located 13 miles from Vancouver and 14 miles from Portland.

Vibe and Style

From its origins as a paper-mill town, Camas has expanded, developed, and successfully blended a mix of cultures, values and vision. These ideals have been instrumental in promoting diverse economic growth, encouraging development of livable neighborhoods, protecting open space, and building parks and other recreational amenities.

Prune Hill rises over the western half of the city and showcases large Portland homes hugging the hillsides with views of Mt. Hood and the city lights of downtown Portland. Descending from the top of the hill and past the lake, one enters the more established areas, with home styles including traditional, Craftsman, older Victorians, modern homes on large park-like lots, condos, and townhomes.

Local Scene

Downtown, charming antique stores, clothing shops from upscale to consignment, gift and coffee shops, restaurants, a historic theatre and much more are housed in well-preserved older buildings. Trees, planters and sitting areas create a beautiful, relaxing place to shop or have a cup of coffee with friends. A large, newly remodeled brick library sits proudly, overlooking the downtown streets. Plus, an array of shopping centers, plazas and professional services are just minutes away, east of downtown, with the backdrop of the Columbia River and Mount Hood.

Outdoor Sanctuary

There are 12 parks in Camas including a skate park, providing playgrounds, picnic tables and walking paths. Lacamas Lake Regional Park is a 312-acre forested reserve just north of downtown. There are six miles of paved and unpaved trails that wind through forested areas, some with old-growth trees, a cascading waterfall, and a small lake to paddle a canoe. The lakeside day-use area has a play center, picnic tables and restrooms. Fishermen test their skills against bass, bluegill and perch in Round Lake, which is open to non-motorized boats only, and has a 1.2 mile trail surrounding it.
