Cape Meares State Park Travel Guide: 17 reviews and 69 photos
Cape Meares State Park is in Tillamook County. This view is from the Scenic Viewpoint. This is also a wildlife refuge. I had my first view of a Peregrine Falcon flying here from the rocks in the picture.
As with all Oregon beaches and parks there is no charge to enjoy the beauty found here.
There is also an interpretive center here for orientation about the whale migration on the Pacific Coast.
This lighthouse is the shortest lighthouse on the Oregon Coast.
It is 38 feet off the ground. They have free admission into the lighthouse and the gift shop.
There is quite a bit of good information inside about the Cape Meares Lighthouse. The giftshop has very nice things to look at and purchase for souviners. I'm not too much of a shopper but I did buy a nice tote bag here with a picture of the lighthouse on it. The procedes of the sales go to protect the lighthouse and the wildlife refuge.
- Pros:All the beaches on the Oregon Coasts are open to the public
- Cons:Short summer season
- In a nutshell:Some of the most beautiful country on earth.
The Cape Meares Lighthouse was built in 1890. It's located 10 miles west of Tillamook and U.S. 101. It's height above... more travel advice
