We were looking for a place to stay in our RV for a couple of nights before joining a group of friends in nearby Long Beach, and happened upon Cape Disappointment State Park. I couldn't figure out why I was unable to make a reservation on-line since the site indicated there was a space available which would accommodate the size of our RV. A call to the 800 number connected me to a most helpful woman who explained that yes there was a site, but only for one night and we would have to move to the next door site on the second day. She completed all the arrangements, answered my questions and we were set within minutes, so I highly recommend the Washington State Park reservation system. As for the park, what a pleasant surprise. I'm a native Washingtonion and thought I knew western Washington very well. Turns out I didn't. Cape Disappointment has so much to offer, we couldn't do it all in two days! The Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center sits high on a bluff overlooking the mouth of the Columbia River and easily eats up an entire afternoon. There are two historic lighthouses - both are working and one is open for a climb to the top where a volunteer docent is waiting to answer almost any question you might ask. The beaches were beautiful and a bonus was a Coast Guard sea rescue drill occuring just steps away from our campsite. We will definitely go back and spend more time exploring everything we missed.
