The Skamania County Superior Court hears both Criminal & Civil cases and shares its Judge with Klickitat County. 

The state constitution vests authority in the legislature to direct the number of judges of the Superior Court. By that authority, Skamania and Klickitat counties have one Superior Court judge. Thus, the Superior Court Judge for the judicial district of Skamania/Klickitat alternates weekly between the two county seats.
