Are there any swamps on the west coast?

    Yes, there are plenty.  See the link below for a list of 98 swamps in California alone.

    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.

    Swamps are wetlands that have trees or shrubs; uncommon but they do occur in the west, especially willows in standing water.
