Welcome to the Prairie! Homesteaders found the fertile land on the Camas Prairie ideal for growing grains, hay and livestock – agricultural activities predominant today. Visit in May or June when brilliant yellow canola contrasts with deep green wheat fields. In August and September, watch combines complete the harvest. The Camas Prairie is named for the camas flowers native to the area. Their deep purple blankets the prairie in early May and June.
