Camas is a city located in Clark County. It has a population of approximately 19,355. It became officially incorporated in 1906 and was named after the camas lily which is a plant prized by Native Americans.
Camas houses a paper-mill which is where the city’s high school teams get their name of “the Papermakers.” Although the city’s industry was once based on paper mills, it has become more diverse. As such, companies such as Sharp Microelectronics, Hewlett-Packard, and Linear Technology have made their home in Camas.
The city has many events in the summer, such as festivals and celebrations. It even has its own festival called “Camas Days.”
Camas borders the Washington side of the Columbia River which is across from Troutdale, Oregon. In order to travel across the river, motor vehicles use the I-5 interstate bridge and the I-205 Glenn Jackson Bridge. There is also one main road that travels through the town, the SR 14 expressway.
Camas is home to Prune Hill, which is an extinct volcanic vent and part of the Boring Lava Field of Oregon and Washington. Now Prune Hill is home to much of the residential areas of the city.
