About The Park

The Cape Disappointment Light was the first lighthouse in the Pacific North West. Make sure to take a tour during your next visit to the park!

The area got its interesting name after explorer John Meares was unable to cross the river during his exploration in 1788.

During the Civil War, forts were established around Cape Disappointment to protect the area against Confederate forces.

The Cape features freshwater lakes, hiking trails, and salt water marshes, making it the ideal place to spend an afternoon in the great outdoors!
