Aberdeen was named after a city in Scotland. The Gaelic word means “the meeting of two rivers,” which is appropriate for this Washington town established at the confluence of the Chehalis (chuh-hay-lis) and Wishkah (wish-kah) rivers. The name Hoquiam (hoh-kwee-uhm) derives from the Indian term houiumpts, meaning “hungry for wood,” which referred to the abundance of driftwood at the mouth of the Hoquiam River. This guide includes information on lodging, campgrounds, RV parks, restaurants, entertainment, shopping, and outdoor activities near these coastal cities.
