Cape Disappointment is located across the river in Washington just 20mins from Astoria. It got it’s name from Captain John Mearess who failed to cross the river bar in 1788. There’s a lot of history that’s tied to this place! The State Park is large and has a diverse landscape of old-growth forests where you can hike, freshwater lakes for boating, saltwater marches, the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center, and two lighthouses (North Head Lighthouse and Cape Disappointment Lighthouse) We spent half the day exploring the park, first starting out by hiking to Cape Disappointment Lighthouse, stopping to look at the Dead Man’s Cove, and then visiting the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center. During sunset time we drove over to the North Head Lighthouse which was recently renovated. The park has a lot of camping as well and Alex grew up camping there almost every summer.

Great views of the ocean and Columbia River. On High A King Tides it is spectacular Wave watching at Waikiki Beach. In the summer Waikiki beach is a good place to swim. Offers a visitor center where you can learn about the History of Lewis and Clark, the Chinook Indians and the early days of the commercial traffic on the Columbia river. Easy Walking Trails.

The jetty, the museum, the views! Beautiful on clear, sunny days, dramatic and moving in stormy weather. Places like these are the reason for having good raingear and getting yourself out in it.
