Camas Creek is a 63-mile (101 km) long[3] tributary of Mud Lake in the U.S. state of Idaho. Beginning at an elevation of 6,287 feet (1,916 m)[1] near Kilgore in northeastern Clark County, it flows southwest into Jefferson County and receives its largest tributary, Beaver Creek. It then passes through the Camas National Wildlife Refuge, and reaches its mouth northeast of the town of Mud Lake,[5] at an elevation of 4,783 feet (1,458 m).[2] Camas Creek has a 1,011-square-mile (2,618 km2) watershed.[4]
