An easily accessible swimming basin that invites cliff jumpers and picnickers for a secluded afternoon in the sun. The family friendly Naked Falls is just 20 minutes outside of Camas, Washington. It is a great introduction to kids of the great Pacific Northwest. So so so fun!

Naked Falls is the second largest waterfall on the Washougal River. This section of the river has been a hotspot for Kayakers and Cliff divers for decades. If you like watching Salmon run, this is a great place to do it. The area was closed off for Camping several years ago and completely shut off to the public last Summer.
Naked Falls is the second largest waterfall on the Washougal River and one of the more interesting large-river waterfalls in the state. It has a similar appearance to Middle Lewis River Falls, but on a smaller scale. In addition to it's rather unique shape, the river boasts some of the most colorful rock above and below the falls, making the bright orange bedrock under the clear blue water as much of an attraction as the falls are. Naked Falls is located on private land, and is not part of the surrounding Weyerhauser properties. Public access was closed off for several years due to liability concerns, however the landowner has now reopened the falls to public use for a fee, and requires parking permits to visit the falls.
