Yes, there are plenty. See the link below for a list of 98 swamps in California alone.
Um, swamps are wetlands that have trees, shrubs or emergent woody plants such as willows. Many of the wetland listed on the above citation(www.lat-long…) do not have woody vegetation and are another type of wetland.
As an addendum to the above answer (and as a native west coast-er), I’d like to note that the wetlands of the west coast (we don’t really call them swamps here) are generally very different from the wetlands of the American South. Fewer vines and alligators, more grasses and conifers. I’ve added a link to the Oregon State Wetlands Program for you to get a feel for the characteristics of many west coast wetlands.
Please note that by “fewer” I meant “pretty much none” 😀
Swamps are wetlands that have trees or shrubs; uncommon but they do occur in the west, especially willows in standing water.
