Clatskanie is part of the Portland-Vancouver, Oregon-WA metro area.

Clatskanie was named after the Tlatskanai tribe of American Indian, who lived in the hills south of the Clatskanie River in the upper Nehalem Valley. Industries which have played an important part of the Clatskanie's growth have been mainly those concerned with logging, and the revolutionary 'cigar- shaped log rafts used to transport timber to San Diego.

Hunting, fishing, windsurfing and fossil hunting are all popular attractions throughout the area.
