Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center

In November of 1805, the U.S. Corps of Volunteers for Northwest Discovery, led by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, reached the mouth of the mighty Columbia River and the Pacific Ocean at last. "Great joy in camp," Clark wrote in his journal, "we are in View of the Ocian, this great Pacific Octean which we been So long anxious to See."


Today the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center stands high on the cliffs of Cape Disappointment State Park, 200 feet above the pounding Pacific surf.

The center also features a short film presentation, a gift shop and a glassed-in observation deck with fabulous views of the river, headlands and sea.
