Beautiful park. Lovely views of the ocean and the Columbia river, a few cool lighthouses, and some beautiful hiking paths. I could've spent days just wandering around this park. Make sure you bring your Discovery Pass!

We enjoyed the interpretive center and the hike along scenic vistas to the lighthouse. A bonus was two young male fawns grazing near the lighthouse who weren't afraid of us being nearby. A must see!

We happen to enjoy mountains, the ocean, hiking, and history. We got a five star experience on all counts at Cape Disappointment. The Interpretive Center is excellent, though parking was rough. (We got the last space on a Monday afternoon in July. Heaven help those...More
