7 Comments on “Cape Disappointment State Park”

  1. Joodie Klinke says:

    We stayed here in June 2016 in our 24′ Chinook Destiny. This is a very popular summertime park, and our reservations had us moving to three spots since none were available consecutively, the last of which was dry camping. There is no shortage of activities here, the highlights of our stay being lots of hiking, biking on the paved Discovery Trail to Ilwaco, and enjoying a Saturday night concert by local musicians. Notable wildlife was deer, frogs by the ton, and garter snakes.

  2. Trying to pick a cabin at cape dissapointment. None of the photos show the 3 cabins in between sites 205 & 209. Do you happen to have them?

  3. Normally during summer months along the coast the weather is constantly overcast, foggy, and windy, I would like some warmth.
    I assume campgrounds A, B, and C are like this, but is the weather like this at campground D as well?

    • Hi Emily,
      Pretty much all of the campground loops (A, B, C and D) at Cape Disappointment State Park will be damp, overcast and foggy. Loop D is a tad more protected (from wind).

  4. If you get a site with a yurt, is there room for a tent as well?

    • Hi Christine,
      We’re not sure what the policy is at Cape Disappointment State Park regarding having a tent at a Yurt site. I recommend you call the Park directly to see what they say: 360 642-3078
