The Elochoman Slough Marina is a focus of Wahkiakum County recreational and economic activity. Boaters from Portland and Vancouver, as well as Ilwaco and Astoria, flock to the Elochoman Slough Marina because of its location, its historical river town amenities, and the pristine rural character of the surrounding land. Both commercial and recreational fishermen also frequent the Elochoman Slough Marina, especially during salmon fishing windows in the spring and the fall.  The marina also offers cabins, yurts, recreational vehicle hook-ups and dry land camping. The site is very paddler friendly and provide excellent launch points to a variety of lower Columbia River paddling locations. Yurts ($36/night plus tax) and cabins ($90 - $110/night plus tax) typically require reservations in advance. Contact the Marina office for details.
