Washougal, Washington Family Law Documents Prepared
I thought that Washougal came from a word like Washington. However, it is a word that came possibly from Chinook Indians here in Washington State. Apparently, to the Chinook it means rushing water, river rocks, or something having to do with the rushing river. Interestingly, many of the cities in Washington State have local Indian words used to name them. In the case of Washougal and Camas, they are Indian words that describe a river and a plant.
