  • Nice place to view the ocean front. Little history over the light house that you can see from here called cape disappointment lighthouse. You cannot actually access cape disappointment lighthouse from here. There is a different route to it from below parking spot. It has gift shop and an mini antique museum
  • Amazing scenery and history here. Lots of great information and interactive displays. Got married at Cape Disappointment, always love coming back here for anniversaries. Very clean and relaxing environment. The gift shop has some really great books and t-shirts to check out. Nothing else feels quite like home as the nearby trails, amazing view, and Pacific Northwest weather.
  • Cool place to spend the day, learn a bit of history and take in the scenery. There's a few hiking trails, including one to the light house if you want to make a day of driving to the area.
  • my interpretation was correct. you have successfully ruined my life.come find my dead body next to a family sized bag of doritos where i died of boredom.
  • I had a tour and read nearly everything I could on the walls as I went through. it was fun learning about lewis and clark.
