Skamokawa is ten miles west of Cathlamet on the lower Columbia River close to the ocean. The building, Skamokawa Landing, it has its own web page, and was restored by Karen's dad. It sits over the water next to the Butler-Hanson Game Preserve, lots of birds and other animals.

Advantages for OF party: beautiful setting, large auditorium, kitchen, large everything, river kayaking rental, and other stuff.

Disadvantages: Distance. You would probably want to make this a two day thing considering travel time but the extra time gives you the opportunity to look around the area.

Sleeping arrangements: There are three bedrooms in the building (one is ours) that leaves two and lots of room for sleeping bags. For OFs with old bones there are B&Bs, four I think. There is also a camp ground that over looks the river a short walk from the building.
