Lacamas Park

Lacamas Park Professional Review and Guide

"If you live even remotely close to the Portland metro area and you haven’t paid Lacamas Park a visit, you should remedy the situation. The park has all the family-friendly trappings you would expect: barbecue/picnic areas, a playground, etc. But
it’s also home to Round Lake and Lacamas Creek.

The hiking paths within the park visit open meadows, impressive swatches of old-growth forest, popular swimming
holes, and a handful of waterfalls, including what is believed to be the only non-basalt waterfall in the Columbia River Gorge. The best wildflower show in the metro area takes place here, as does one of the area’s best fall color displays."

More Lacamas Park Professional Reviews and Guides

"An incredibly wild and diverse 312-acre preserve within the city limits of Camas, Lacamas Park contains more than 6 miles of excellent trails. A gift to the people of Clark County from the Crown Zellerbach Company in 1964, the park contains a lake, several waterfalls, and gorgeous oldgrowth forest—and a bluff that blossoms with the park’s namesake, la camas. That’s what the French Canadians of the Hudson’s Bay Company called these violet blue flowers of the Camassia genus. The area’s First Peoples called them quamash. Most call them camas. I call them simply beautiful."

"Teeming with walkers, runners, and hikers, rain or shine yearround, this wonderful trail runs along the full length of slender Lacamas Lake and beside the creek of the same name feeding into it."

Pleasant walk on well maintained trail. Gentle rises and no special equipment needed. Walk along the lakeside.
