“Not as impressive as Ft Stevens in Oregon”

Fort Canby State Park
Ranked #9 of 16 things to do in Ilwaco
Attraction details
Reviewed 11 June 2013

Visiting the Interpretive Center (after figuring out the cash vs credit card system) we also took a brief look at the Ft Canby Battery. It was nothing like the Ft Stevens Battery we had visited in the morning, but was still interesting and worth a look. The Interpretive Center saved the day There is handicap parking at the base of the Interpretive Center, but bring your card. $10 to park and $5 to
enter the Interpretive Center.

I have been camping at Fort Canby for nearly 35 years. While the name has been changed to Cape Disappointment, this park certainly does not disappoint. The campground is beautiful; right on the beach, close to miles of hiking trails and two lighthouses. There's Ilwaco for fishing and art; Long Beach for go carts and ice cream. So much to do from your base camp at Fort Canby. Or just relax around the campfire and roast some marshmallows.

Brilliant and certainly not disappointing. If you visit Astoria you must go and have a look at this edge of the earth, windy, isolated atmospheric place

Another great state park in the PNW for history and beauty. Great base camp for the Washington side of the Columbia's mouth to explore from. So much to see and do!
