One of the many attractions of Sharp Labs is its location in the Pacific Northwest. Our headquarters in Camas, Washington is approximately 10 miles from the city of Vancouver, Washington and 20 miles from downtown Portland, Oregon. These cities are acclaimed for their creative culture and surrounded by endless recreation and spectacular scenery.
Perched on a 120-acre site above the Columbia River, SLA is surrounded by meadows and forests where wildlife thrive with Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Hood easily visible in the distance.
Explore in All Directions
Within 90 minutes, you can be surfing and beachcombing on the Pacific coast, skiing or snowboarding year-round on Mt. Hood, hiking through forests, riding the waves in the windsurfing capital of America, or exploring endless vineyards and their world-famous wines. Within a few hours drive are half a dozen volcanoes, high deserts, whitewater rivers, pristine trout streams, and national forests more than a million acres large. From rock climbing to kayaking to mountain biking – it’s all in the neighborhood of the Pacific Northwest.
And there are plenty of places to explore and footpaths to follow right in Sharp Lab’s own backyard. Our own Clark County offers more than 40 miles of urban trails, including the Waterfront Renaissance Trail’s 4-mile path, flanked by restaurants, shops and the Columbia River along which you can stroll or pedal.
Our Good-Natured Big Cities
The metropolitan area that surrounds Sharp Labs is distinguished as one of the most livable urban areas in North America. Right in and around our home town of Camas you’ll discover a bounty of museums, art galleries, boutiques, antique shops, outdoor concerts and much more.
Taking a short drive to Portland, you can enjoy the spirited culture of a big city built on a European model, made as much for walkers and bikers as for cars. Portland has won accolades as the #1 biking, walking, and jogging region in America, as well as the safest, cleanest and most sustainable big city in the U.S. Portland's expansive light-rail system covers 44 miles and is free downtown. The city has become a destination for its fresh Northwest cuisine, art and culture, boutique shopping, and the largest congregation of microbreweries in the world.
