Welcome to Chinook

Experience our unique coastal lifestyle.

The town of Chinook is located on Baker Bay, on the north side of the Columbia River just behind Cape Disappointment and the mouth of the Columbia. Originally established by the Chinook Indians, the town of Old Chinookville was home to over 1,000 native people until the arrival of settlers from the east.
