Skamokawa (/skʌˈmɑːkəˌweɪ/) is an unincorporated community in Wahkiakum County, Washington, United States. Skamokawa is a Chinook term for smoke or fog on the water.

Skamokawa rests on the banks of the Columbia River, and on WA 4. The town includes a post office, restaurant, and general store, along with a nearby historical museum and covered bridge. It is a local center for kayaking and fishing.

This event will include our annual picnic featuring grilled salmon.
