CAMAS, WA-The Port of Camas-Washougal and the state of Washington have closed a long anticipated land swap that gives the port back land it sold to the state in 1991, and gives the state land for a new state park.

The 45 acres the Port is getting back is considered prime industrial land. It was planned as park land, but nearby industrial development killed the effort. The 232 acres the state is getting is considered prime park land. It is located several miles north of the mouth of the Washougal River, and includes 4,700 feet of river frontage.

Port director Sheldon Tyler was not immediately available for comment on the swap Friday morning. Expect the industrial to be developed as interest is expressed. Don’t expect the park to be built any time soon. The state’s parks department reportedly has $300 million worth of capital facilities projects slated for completion within the next 10 years, and a new state park in Camas isn’t among them.
