Fodor's Expert Review Cape Meares State Park

Tillamook Nautical Site/Lighthouse

On the northern tip of the Three Capes Loop is Cape Meares State Park. The restored Cape Meares Lighthouse, built in 1890 and open to the public April through October, provides a sweeping view over the cliff to the caves and sea lion rookery on the rocks below. A many-trunked Sitka spruce known as the Octopus Tree grows near the lighthouse parking lot.
