This non-operational lighthouse is relatively small, as in height that is open to the public during the summer. Besides the lighthouse, numerous trails allow you to explore the surrounding area.
This area also affords great views of cliffside nesting birds and during the season whale...More
I refer to this lighthouse as the dopey lighthouse as it is very short. If I remember right it's only about 6 steps to the top but inside is currently closed for winter season. There is no fee to visit and a short hike to...More
Come to the light house from Oceanside, OR. The rd will state it is closed but it’s closed after the park. The north way to the light house is closed due the road being washed out.
The rough road isn’t but a few miles, the...More
We drove up here, coming from Cape Lookout. The road past Cape Meares is completely closed untill further notice. There is a parking lot near the viewpoints and the lighthouse. On the platform of the largest viewpoint there were 2 people from the birdwatching society...More
This place was worth finding We drove one day the north coast road only to find road closed signs. We asked many in town and they said the road to there had been closed a couple years. Well next day we see a road going...More
It's quite a ways out of town. We parked and then walked on some of the trails. It has a lighthouse of course. Places to look out at the ocean. Very nice place. There is also a trail to an octopus tree, a sitca spruce...More
The place can get a little difficult to reach - the road to the lighthouse area was closed so we had to go around 13 miles to make a full circle and come to the lighthouse from the other side. Unfortunately, owing to its remote...More
The views from the parking lot to the lighthouse were fantastic. There are two paths you can take and we took one one way in the Forrest area and going back along the coast overlooking amazing views, sea bird nesting sites and ea lions. THe...More

Cape Meares State Park is a beautiful and scenic park. The lighthouse is at the end of Cape Meares and has a panoramic over the Pacific Ocean. The lighthouse is pretty small, but you can go inside and take a tour (during the summer season)....More

The Parking lot and grounds and the lower level of the Lighthouse are all Handicap Accessible...however, the upper levels of the lighthouse, because of the nature of how they are constructed involves the use of a narrow spiral staircase which would NOT be accessible....
In fact, now that the subject has come up, I do not believe any of the some 20 or thirty lighthouses we have visited in the US so far have been completely handicap accessible for the same reason stated above....

I'm not sure what times the area opens and closes. In the Winter months I would assume that it would be during daylight hours, probably 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. My wife and I went to Shore Acres State Park last weekend in the afternoon and when we were leaving the park at 3:45 pm, they had closed the entry gates as park closes at 4:00 pm. It would be my guess that Cape Meares would be very similar. i hope this helps.
