Warrenton Marina is a busy commercial and recreational marina and boat launch close to downtown Warrenton. The marina isn't actually on the Columbia River, but in a sheltered waterway that makes up the greatly modified mouth of the Skipanon River. From the marina, it is a straight paddle out the Skipanon Waterway (watch for motorboats) to the western side of Young's Bay and the Columbia. The marina is equiped with nice restrooms, showers, and a fish cleaning station.

As a secondary paddle option, you can paddle up the Skipanon River from the marina, which requires a short portage around a tide gate. The Skipanan winds through residential Warrenton, and it is possible to paddle all the way to Cullaby Lake, 8 miles to the south.
