This article is about the Jefferson County stream, for other uses, see Camp Branch (disambiguation).

Camp Branch is a short stream running northward from a point near Ensley Pleasant Grove Road, through the former mining town of Edgewater into Village Creek at Bayview Lake.

On its course, the stream crosses Mulga Loop Road and Birmingport Road.

According to writer Mary Gordon Duffee, the banks of the stream were frequently used as a camping site by Native Americans, possibly as a base from which to mine silver from the nearby headwaters of Lost Creek to the west.
