Bucoda, WA

“Town with the million-dollar payroll”

The Town of Bucoda is defined by its history – its role as the site of the first prison in Washington Territory, its position on the first Northern Pacific transcontinental railroad, and its repute as a historic logging town with a “million dollar payroll.” While many of these industries, and the community bustle associated with them have left Bucoda, the community’s history (and beauty) remains for those who visit.


  • Odd Fellows’ Hall, a structure recently restored by the community and available for events, such as weddings and family get-togethers.
  • Volunteer Park offers camping and fishing along the beautiful Skookumchuck River.
  • Halloween Haunted House–The town transforms into “Boocoda” for the Halloween season to offer two spooky experiences: SCARY-NIGHTS (not for the faint of heart) and a family friendly version suitable for the littles.
