Leadbetter State Park and the Willapa National Wildlife Refuge

Cape Disappointment State Park
On July 6, 1788, English fur trader John Meares names the northern side of the entrance to the Columbia River, Cape Disappointment. The name reflects Meares’ chagrin at not finding the Columbia River. Today, Cape Disappointment is anything but a disappointment. It has awe-inspiring scenery with two lighthouses, spectacular bluffs, and meadows full of native plants. There’s also a Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center, general store, and old military fortresses to explore. Tent camping, RV spots, Yurts and Cabins are available to rent inside the park.
Nahcotta Tidelands Interpretive Site
The Interpretive Center on Sandridge Road has signs describing animal and plant life in Willapa Bay.
It is the only place where oysters can be harvested on this side of the bay. Oysters must be shucked on-site and the shells left there for future oysters to grow on.
