Camara has signed a three-year deal with Les Verts and was one of coach Elie Baup's prime transfer targets.
The 25-year-old, who spent last season on loan at Leeds United, rejoins St Etienne after a six-year absence.
The defender initially left the club in 1998 to move to Italy with Empoli but he has now returned after opting to leave Lens.
With Camara's exit confirmed, Lens are stepping up their search for a replacement with Eric Cubilier a possible recruit.
The Monaco full back spent last season on loan at Paris Saint Germain but struggled in the capital and may be offered a lifeline by Lens.
Servette Geneva's Hilton is another option for Lens as they look for another solid season in the French top flight.
