National wildlife refuges offer us all a chance to unplug from the stresses of daily life and reconnect with our natural surroundings. Camas National Wildlife Refuge is approximately 11,000 acres located in a rural farming community. The refuge offers some unique views of the Teton mountains to the east, the Centennial mountains to the north, along with the Beaverhead, Lemhi, and Lost River ranges to the west. The refuge is easily accessible. Both short visits along the auto-tour route or a longer day hike through the high desert habitat can be easily accommodated. The two most popular activities on the refuge are photography and birding. The east side of the Refuge borders Interstate 15, which makes a great stop for people who are traveling and need to take a break.
Camas NWR can be easily accessed while traveling along Interstate 15 for a quick trip or day-long destination. Wildlife viewing and/or photography can provide a much need break for travelers or locals wanting a short drive to get outdoors and experience a natural environment.
