The Cameron Apartments provides residents with a fitness center, picnic/grilling area, onsite caretaker, laundry facility, elevator and bike storage. Amenities within each unit include an electric range, refrigerator, microwave oven, dishwasher, secure intercom entry, patio/balcony and central air conditioning.  A washer and dryer are standard in two-bedroom units.
