Local economy includes salt mining, tourism, hunting, fishing and trapping.
The community was named for Father C.J. Camper, an early Roman Catholic missionary. The community had a church built 1906-1910, which was subsequently destroyed in 1930 but was rebuilt, as the walls of the old church were reusable. However, one can easily distinguish between the two because the first church had a two storey steeple while the steeple on the second was only one storey.
Camperville had a population of 547 in 2011, an increase of 7.9% since 2006. The village had 187 occupied dwellings on a land area of 9.98 square km and the median age was 26.8.
