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.

I go to Lacamas Lake and Round Lake at least 2 times per week to walk. Round Lake (and connecting Lacams Creek) especially has some nice trails and scenery. There are loads of side trails and access roads that can give you a 4-5 mile walk. With the up hill sections I can get a good work out and be... More

Not lengthy or difficult by any means, but a nice woodsy experience on well-managed trail around a small lake. Fishing allowed. Nice bathrooms. Safe.

I hesitate to even mention this gem of a park because the traffic will increase even more. This however is our special secret here in Camas. Beautiful peaceful lake, wonderful trail system, and parking for boats, etc. As a walker, my only complaint is the foot traffic! It is just too crowded on the weekends during prime time. In general... More
