Cape Disappointment





Cape Disappointment doesn’t disappoint! Take a trip to the clashing waves and the immersive ocean. Cape Disappointment State Park, also known as Kah’eese by the Chinook tribe, is located along the Long Beach Peninsula in Washington. Cape Disappointment offers campgrounds, freshwater and saltwater fishing, and historical installments. The park offers seven different hiking trails where, depending on where you start, you can view the Cape Disappointment Lighthouse or North Head Lighthouse. As part of the Confluence installments, the Maya Lin project includes a fish cleaning table and an observation deck overlooking Baker Bay. The artwork commemorates Chinook tribal stories and songs from a restored native landscape. It is required for visitors to purchase a one-day or annual Discover Pass. Please follow park regulations and watch for any hazards before and during your trip!
