About This Community
Situated in the eastern hilly portion of Clark County lies the City of Camas, home to more than 20,000 residents and several large, hi-tech manufacturing industries. Located along the banks of the Columbia River, this "small" city has become a "big" host to many international companies. From its origin over 100 years ago as a paper-mill town, which still boasts a mill today, Camas has expanded, developed and blended a mix of cultures, values and visions. Camas also plays host to a dormant volcanic hill - Prune Hill that is named for the earlier prune orchards that existed there.

It was also here in Camas that Riverview got its start. In 1923 a small group of citizens founded Clarke County Savings and Loan Association. The Board wanted a safe, profitable place for savings that would retain funds in Southwest Washington and provide low interest loans to purchase, construct and remodel family homes. For 40 years, Clarke County Savings and Loan served Southwest Washington customers of a small office in Camas. Relationships were built with local consumers and businesses through the shared values of pride, respect, integrity and local, personal service. These same values drive Riverview today.
