Skamokawa has both a long history and prehistory; it was the site of an Indian village over two thousand years ago. The name Skamokawa means “smoke on the water,” so called after the fog which drifts down the three valleys opening onto the town and the Columbia River. Skamokawa was also the name of the last chief of the Wahkiakum Indians who’s home was located on the West end of the beach now known as The Cove.
Vista Park offers basketball, baseball, horseshoes, tennis, two playgrounds and of course bird watching, ship watching, fishing, and sunbathing. For those wanting to venture away from the campground there is plenty to do in the surrounding area including kayaking, disc golf, several museums, hiking, and fishing.
We love vista park, being so close to home but feels so far away. The staff is so nice. Bathrooms always clean!
Our first time camping here and we loved it... my grandson had so much fun in the sand. We definitely will come back to this camping ground great place to be!
Vista park is my happy place...Love it so much I moved 8 minutes away and it is still my escape/happy place.
A beautiful spot with a long sandy shoreline on the Columbia River. We saw many bald eagles, a pair of nesting ospreys as well a variety of other birds. It's fun watching the ships passing by so nearby...
The kite festival is a highlight of the summer with hundreds of kites flying over our park!
