Cape Disappointment State Park - North Head Lighthouse

Cape Disappointment State Park location
North Head Lighthouse
The Lantern Room of the lighthouse, on a cliff high above the Pacific Ocean, is a glorious spot for shorter ceremonies and smaller weddings. The lighthouse and surrounding grounds are available for wedding ceremonies only. Receptions need to be held elsewhere. Built in 1898 to assist ships near the mouth of the Columbia River, it is one of the few lighthouses along Washington's Pacific Coast that is open to the public. North Head Lighthouse Keepers' Residence is available nearby for honeymoon or other overnight rental.


The lighthouse can accommodate up to six guests inside and up to 20 guests outside.

There are restrooms in the park.
