    In 1825, the Hudson's Bay Fur Company established Fort Vancouver near present day Vancouver, WA. Fur trappers and loggers began to visit regions of the Columbia River and they also assigned names to familiar locations. Washougal, also known as Washougally Camp, is thought to be a derivative of an Indian word meaning "rushing water."
