Just at the entrance to the park is a public library. The park is all planted in grass with several attractive stands of trees. In addition to traditional RV camping and tent camping sites Skamokawa Vista Park offers 5 heated yurts in 3 sizes. Finally, Skamokawa Vista Park offers hot showers, flush toilets, fire rings, picnic tables and several day use shelters. Reservations are possible and recommended during Salmon and Steelhead seasons.

    Can a campground move the earth? A silly question you say, but in this case they moved tons of white sand onto the shore of this Columbia River gem. A bank of trees protects campsites from the wind of the Columbia River. On weekends, dozens of multi-colored kayaks line the sandy beach, as this is a popular spot for many WA and OR kayak clubs, who enjoy the many canals on which the town of Skamokawa is built. The town resembles "Who-Ville," depicted by Dr. Seuss, with the buildings much higher than wide, all built around canals, and leaning just a bit. I rate this park #1 best campground in a fascinating tiny town. For more info contact
