Loved the Cape Disappointment area! Very educational and a wonderful way to get to know the natural park area! So much I didn't know about the Lewis and Clark Expedition until visiting this site!

This was a family trip. We took our grandchildren. Our grandson was studying Lewis & Clark in school. He just loved all the exhibits, as did the rest of us. We all had a great time.

Part of American history, this Park is worth the time to educate your children. Not very big and easy to navigate, the staff are really informative and engaging. Be sure to partake of the tours and demonstrations.

This was a great place to go and get the history of Lewis and Clark. I learned a lot and the trails are great. It would be a good place to pack a lunch and spend the day.

I could not get to all the sites i wanted to visit, but the interactive center at Cape Disappointment should have been the first stop to plan the rest. the history is very exciting, and fascinating.

Have to say the signage for this park coming from Astoria sucked. It was terribly hard to find but once we did I enjoyed it. We had a preteen, teen and two adults and all of us were engaged for a time in learning about the L&C expedition and enjoying the view.

It is a more historical park than a scenic park. Worth a quick visit if you pass by the area, e.g. drive from OR coast to Seattle area or vice versa. The exhibit is good. There is some houses in the park to show how they lived there yet they are duplicate. The park has multiple locations.

The park does a great job telling the story of Lewis and Clark. The visitor's center includes exhibits explaining the history of their travels and a film describing the winter the explorers encountered once they reached the west coast. The reproduction fort is interesting and the docent was knowledgeable. Take the time to take the short hike along the river.
