Camas WA Real Estate
Incorporated in 1906, Camas was originally known for its paper mill. Recently it has become the base for multiple high-tech companies, creating jobs and attracting new residents. The influx of new opportunities has set the stage for a thriving community only 14 miles from Portland, OR and 13 miles from Vancouver, WA.
Camas, WA Living
Camas has come a long way from its humble paper mill days; with economic growth at the forefront of the town’s future, it offers a unique community atmosphere which still maintains a small-town feel with quaint restaurants, coffee shops and an historic theatre. The blend of the traditional with the new upscale shops and eateries makes Camas a truly unique and wonderful place to live.
For outdoor life, Camas has 12 parks, including playgrounds, a skate park and walking paths. Just north of downtown Camas is Lacamas Lake, a 312-acre forest reserve offering recreational opportunities including hiking, fishing, canoeing, and picnicking among old-growth trees.
For families, Camas has an outstanding school district, which includes several elementary and middle schools, and a high school which boasts an incredible 92% on-time graduation rate.
