Cape Meares State Park

Lighthouse Rd, Tillamook, Oregon 97141 USA

“Scenic Splendor!”

Cape Meares State Scenic Viewpoint is located 10 miles west of Tillamook, Oregon on the north end of the beautiful Three Capes Scenic Route. The park is open daily, throughout the year, from 7 am to dusk with no day use fee. The trail head to the Big Spruce, Oregon's largest Sitka Spruce, is located near the park entrance. Features within the park include Cape Meares Lighthouse, an informational kiosk, interesting viewpoints where visitors can view off-shore rocks for native birds and the annual whale migration, the Three Arch Rocks National Wildlife Refuge, nature trails, and the Octopus Tree, an Oregon Heritage Tree. A picnic area that can accommodate small groups is located adjacent to the parking area plus picnic tables are situated in the center of the parking circle. Cape Meares Lighthouse is open daily April through October from 11 am to 4 pm. A wide, asphalt trail that is wheelchair accessible, provides easy access to the lighthouse. However, please be advised the steepness of the path makes the walk back to the parking lot seem twice as long for the person pushing the wheelchair.  Benches are conveniently located along the path to enjoy the scenery as well as an alternative return path to the south, where you may enjoy the scenery (or catch your breath).  Admittance to Cape Meares Lighthouse is free. An Interpretive Gift Shop is located in the previous work room of the lighthouse and features items related to lighthouses, the sea, wildlife, wild flowers and souvenirs to remember your visit to Cape Meares State Scenic Viewpoint. Donations and proceeds from the Interpretive Shop are used to enhance the park.

This lighthouse is definitely smaller than others along the coast, and it's not perched as dramatically on the end of a bare cape like the one at Yaquinas, but it's still worth a visit. The view of the sea stacks is really cool, and there's a nice little walk to a ancient spruce tree nearby.
