Travel Tips for Skamokawa
Small Town on the Way to the Long Beach Peninsula
This is the tiny town on the north end of the Julia Butler Hansen Refuge for the Columbian White-tailed Deer. If you turn south over the bridge through town, you can cross Brooks Slough. This gives you access to Brooks Slough Road and Steamboat Slough Road.
In town there is a small county park with camping facilities, and there is one place in town that rents out kayaks for you to explore the various waterways around here.
Be very careful in a boat!!! The water is deep enough at high tide, but at low tide you could be left high and dry, and in quite a tangle.

"Inn at Lucky Mud B&B"
Another stay at the Inn at Lucky Mud with the awesome, incredible Fletchers and their Lucky Mud clan! The homestead property is so peaceful, nestled on a quiet hillside in the Willapa Hills, surrounded by the peaks and tall trees of the rainforest. It's the perfect place to relax and just hang out and be one with the surroundings. The Inn is a nice six-mile drive from the village of Skamokawa on scenic route 4 (the Lewis and Clark highway), about mid-way between Longview-Kelso and I-5 and the Long Beach Penninsula.
Lucky Mud is also a bit of a haven for Disc Golfers, as the property has one of the finest naturalistic official courses in the country. When a disc goes afield here it can be one mighty task looking for it amongst the giant ferns. Add all the musicians who frequent the place to blend with Jessica and Sunrise's musical talents and voila!... a good time to be had by all.
This slice of paradise in the middle of shades of green and the singing of the creeks and the birds is a MUST-VISIT retreat, perfect for a weekend getaway from the busier side of life in Portland or Seattle, and a wonderful place for all breeds of travelers. You'll sleep like a log and wake up thinking you've landed in Heaven.
oneonta_ni's new Skamokawa Page
I am amazed that not one other VT member has a Skamokawa page! This is a lovely little town on the Columbia River and the drive to get here is just gorgeous in the summertime.
The name Skamokawa means 'Smoke on the water' and is named after a local Native American chief. The town is now considered a ghost town but is a nice place for a stop if you happen to be driving along SR4.
It was settled in 1844 and is considered one of the best preserved of the little river communities along the Columbia River. Many of these towns were not accessible by land until well into the 20th century.
A little more information can be found here:
