Camas Things to Do

  • Lacamas Heritage Trail

    Running for 3.5 miles along (mostly) the edge of Lacamas Lake, this trail is a popular place for local residents to jog or walk, and from time to time mountain bike. Few from outside the area seem to know of its existence, however. The trail is gravel for almost its entire length, but is well maintained. There are only a few very short sections...

  • Lacamas Park: Round Lake Loop...

    Located inside the fairly large Lacamas Park, this trail makes a loop around Round Lake. The trail is almost entirely in the forest of the park, but does go near busy highway 500 in order to cross one of the streams.There is an information kiosk in the northwest corner of the park, near the picnic and restroom structure and parking area. Here you...

  • Lacamas Park

    North of the town of Camas, you will find a fairly good sized lake, and near that lake you will find this wonderful forested park with trails and waterfalls.Finding the park is perhaps the most difficult part. There are several parking areas, and the one on highway 500 is very difficult to find. Yet, this parking area is also the one that is...


Camas Restaurants

  • Decent Mexican in the Core of Downtown

    After several iterations under different names (including for a time joining with El Rancho Viejo in downtown Ridgefield to be a part of that family of restaurants), this restaurant is now operating under the name Los Jalapenos.The restaurant sits on an L shaped edge of an older building in downtown Camas. Thus, while the official address is on 3rd...

  • Thai in the Core of Downtown

    Much of the traffic at this little restaurant in the core of downtown Camas is call-in take-out, but there is enough traffic here on certain nights that you will find it reasonably busy with sit-down traffic as well.The walls include a mixture of Thai decorations and historic photographs of Camas.I found the staff to be pleasant and well serving....

  • Decent Mexican in a Suburban Strip Mall

    Once you get outside downtown Camas, the community changes to a vastly auto dominated landscape where not only is this the dominant form of transportation, but it is also impractical to use anything else to get around.Los Potrillos is located in one of these modern nearly impossible except for auto locations, but all the same it is an attractive...

  • Very Good Food but More Expensive than...

    This is what Camas is slowly becoming, and it can be a good thing and it may not be a good thing for some others. With the growing number of higher end housing on the hills above downtown Camas, it should be no surprise that there are now more expensive options for dining.Not that Nuestra Mesa is high end high culture high price, but it is somewhat...

  • Simple Asian Selection

    For the most part Happy Island shows itself to be a Chinese restaurant, but there are also dishes here that are Thai inspired, or otherwise come from an eclectic background.The primary income here is serving the lunch crowd at the paper mill a block away, so don't be surprised if you stop by and find it nearly empty. The good news about that is...

  • Thai in Downtown aimed at Lunch Crowd

    The huge windows in this west facing restaurant certainly give the sunlight a chance to come in, which is a welcome change from a few of the other restaurants in downtown Camas.The primary market served here at the Camas Thai Cuisine seems to be the lunchtime crowd, as the food is prepared fairly quickly, and the evening crowd is fairly sparse. The...


Camas Off The Beaten Path

  • Lower Falls of Lacamas Creek

    These falls are almost completely obscured by forest, and to really get a look at them, you need to be on the bridge directly above the falls - which really doesn't give you that great a few of them.The falls are not a straight drop, for the most part. Instead, they are a very long stone slope the water shoots down.From the State Route 500...

  • Potholes Falls (not much of a waterfall,...

    Another item located in Lacamas Park, this small waterfall passes through very worn rock formations. The best viewing is in the winter when there are no leaves on the trees near the falls, as these do block the view.The falls are in a deep canyon, and the trail that provides the viewpoint is on the edge of a cliff, so watch your young children when...
