Chinook Point is a headland in Pacific County, Washington. Captain Robert Gray, the first non-native to enter the Columbia River, saw the river from Chinook Point in 1792. His explorations gave the United States a strong position in its later territorial contests with Great Britain.
In November 1805, members of the Lewis and Clark Expedition camped at Chinook Point.
It is now part or all of Fort Columbia State Park, which is in turn part of Lewis and Clark National and State Historical Parks.
