The Camas-Washougal Marina on the Columbia River turned out to be a great place to stop with our sailboat this weekend. They have a nice big sign saying Welcome to the Port of Camas-Washougal just east of buoy 46. As we came into the marina we looked for the color coded dock:
The blue colored dock section was simple to find as they aren’t too far into the area and we found several open spots. Tie-up was easy on the starboard side and I was thrilled to find shore power was available.
The fuel dock offers 89 octane and diesel fuel. During the busy boating season hours an attendant is available and fuel can be purchased with cash, check, Visa or Mastercard. You can call the attendant on the phone located in booth near the fuel dock using the number provided there.
I had the opportunity to talk with an extremely nice family traveling in a classic Chris-Craft motor yacht who were also staying at the guest dock. This boat was absolutely beautiful, nicely kept and very bright. Her owners pointed out many of the amenities that at the time of commissioning were upgrades and increased her price tag. The original Bristol fashion gas gauge still in beautiful working order impressed me!
I’m sure you’ll agree this is a gorgeous boat complete with her future Admiral smartly wearing a PFD.
This is a great stop on your up river cruise. There are restaurants, marine repairs, quick grab burgers and ice to restock your cooler. Should you stop there, please tell them we sent you!
