Cape Meares State Park Shopping: 1 reviews and 5 photos
Located inside the Cape Meares Lighthouse, you will find a small store that raises money to keep the facility open by selling various memorabilia. Much of this is oriented around lighthouses in general and the Cape Meares Lighthouse in particular, but there are also more generic Oregon Coast post cards, a small selection of toys, and local artworks.
There is also a small selection of food items.
Please note that the number of items sold on their web site is only a very small selection of the wide variety that is in their store.
There really is a huge variety of items crammed into this little room at the back of the light house, so it is hard to list it all. There are children's binoculars, light house socks, Oregon Coast and lighthouse refrigerator magnets, and countless others in here.
What to buy: Concentrate on the very localized memorabilia and art works that you will probably not find anywhere else.
Though, it is hard to imagine anyone else selling the lighthouse socks, and a few of the other lighthouse specific items you will find here.
Directions: Follow trail to end of Cape Meares, then follow signs to the light house. You will find the gift shop in the old quarters room at the rear of the lighthouse. If they are open, there will be a sign out front.
