The Bible in no ways suggests camel usage was widespread in the area of ancient Israel, in fact quite opposite.
The Midianites who were also said to have camels were a nomadic tribe who had no real territory and wandered all over the Middle East.

Archaeologists suggest a camel buried beneath a floor is evidence it was domesticated as it was its doubtful the family would bury a wild one in a similar fashion.
Zugzwang (German for “compulsion to move,” pronounced [ˈtsuːktsvaŋ]) is a situation found in chess and other games wherein one player is put at a disadvantage because they must make a move when they would prefer to pass and not to move.
In an interview with a Christian talk radio program Issues, Etc,, Dr.
Steinmann said the archaeologists’ suggestion that camel usage was wide-spread in the Book of Genesis is completely wrong. As we study the Biblical record, camels are only mentioned being used in Palestine by Abraham and his family and nomadic tribes such as the Midianites.
Professors Erez Ben-Yosef and Lidar Sapir-Hen were studying camel bones found in Israel that showed the animals had carried heavy loads indicating domestication. As a result, it is suggested someone tampered with the Genesis account adding camels at a later date believing they were used back then because camels were in common usage during that person’s time.
Carbon dating of the bones revealed the camels were from the 10th century B. The Bible on the other hand records Abraham using camels eight centuries earlier dating to around 2000 B. Dr Andrew Steinmann is a professor of theology and Hebrew at Concordia University in Chicago.
Steinmann said: At least 1,000 years before Abraham, dromedary camels — single hump ones — were domesticated and Bactrian camels 500 years after that.
So we know people in Iran did it and it spread into Mespotaimia.
The majority of groups who lived in Palestine at that time, such as the Phoenicians and Canaanites, did not have domesticated camels.
Camels were unique to Abraham and his family for good reason. According to Genesis, he was living in Mesopotamia when God called the patriarch to leave Haran and travel to the promised land — modern-day Israel (Genesis 12:4).
