Camas Potholes

The Camas Potholes (in Camas, Washington) is a popular place to jump from moderately high cliffs into the waters below. On a hot, weekend day, the potholes attract people of all ages. The Camas Potholes can be accessed via a trail from Lacamas Park.

Lacamas Park is an especially popular destination in the Camas/Washougal area. The Potholes are featured by the Clark County Parks Department in their description of the park [http://www.ci.vancouver.wa.us/parks-recreation/parks_trails/parks/camas_washougal/lacamas.htm]

The potholes have been included in several write-ups on the internet [http://www.dwlz.com/CFHC/lacamas_06_05_04/lacamas.html] [http://www.virtualtourist.com/travel/North_America/United_States_of_America/Oregon/Portland-853010/Off_the_Beaten_Path-Portland-BR-1.html] and are a popular focus of photographers [http://www.rosebrosphotos.com/] .

The unusual water flow, drainage from an outlet dam of Lacamas Lake, has carved many "pot holes" in the rock underneath Lacamas Creek. The potholes range in size from approximately 3-10 feet wide and 3-13 feet deep.
