Loved camping with our travel trailer at Cape Disappointment State Park. Sites with services are in the "round" which made it perfect for all three of our families that were there together. Trees shelter many of the sites from the winds coming off the beach....More

The tourism center is very educational and would think that all ages would thoroughly enjoy it. The view is amazing being able to see the mouth of the Columbia River and watch the ships come and go.

We visited the park and walked the trails to both lighthouses. There is a short loop with a lookout view point for those who don't want to walk.

Good campground. Very large, with well-maintained sites. Rangers on site at all times. West-facing sunsets. Good walk-thrus to the beaches.

My wife's family has been coming to this State Park since the mid 1970's - much has changed over the years, including the name, but most hasn't, and that is why we keep coming back. The State Park is beautiful and well kept. The beaches...More
