Washougal is a small city located in Clark County in the southwest corner of the state of Washington. The estimated population in 2008 was 13,509. Washougal sits on the Washington side of the Columbia River, with its' lowlands and prairie. It is the hub for the west entrance to the spectacular Columbia River Gorge. Motorists who approach Washougal from the west on the Lewis & Clark Highway are treated to a majestic display of Mount Hood rising above the Cascade Mountains. Mount Hood is framed by the columnar cliffs that are the gateway to the Gorge and the great Columbia River. The town of Washougal is called the "Crossroads to Discovery," in the Pacific Northwest. The area was first explored by Captain Robert Gray, a Boston fur trader in 1792, and shortly thereafter, famed British explorer, George Vancouver traveled here to verify Gray's discovery. In 1805-1806, another important group of explorers visited the Washougal area, which marked the first cross-continental exploration - the famous Lewis & Clark expedition. Today Washougal is a peaceful, safe, clean and scenic environment. The Washougal River, which joins the Columbia River here, is known for its excellent fishing. Lacamas Lake Park offers boating, fishing, picnicking and hiking trails. The Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, to the east, is also a popular tourist and wind surfing area.

Surrounding areas: Vancouver, Washington (15.4 mi), Kalama, Washington (37.8 mi)
