The planning project for Cape Disappointment State Park was completed in March 2004. The information provided
is for reference only, but comments about the project are still welcome.
In March 2004, the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission adopted a new master plan to guide
future development at Cape Disappointment State Park for the next 20 years and beyond.
Washington State Parks prepared a draft plan to begin implementation of the newly approved master
plan for Cape Disappointment State Park and wants your opinion about the proposal.
The draft plan calls for major reconstruction of the park hub or "Isthmus" area, including construction
of three Maya Lin-designed artworks, new administrative and concession buildings, removal of camping and
installation of cabins, restoration of dunes, wetlands, and riparian habitat, and a significant change in
park circulation and parking. Development of a new park amphitheater near the main campground, improvements
to interpretation, circulation and aesthetics near the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center, and enhanced
interpretive facilities throughout the park also are part of the plan.
Due to file size, the Master Plan report is not posted on the webpage. You may request a CD of the report,
