Cape Meares Lake in Oregon

Trip Overview

This was the first paddle of 2015. Day before Mothers Day we wanted to get out to the Coast.

This is a great location right next to the Pacific Ocean, Bayocean Peninsula County Park and Tillamook Bay. About a 3+ mile circumnavigation with awesome views, Seabirds, Beaver Lodges and beautiful flowers!

We took our time (2+ hours on the water) then drove down to Oceanside for lunch. Just an all 'round great time!


Easy put-in at the boat ramp at the bottom of Bayshore Dr


No fees, parking along the road


West on 26 from Portland to 6, then on to Tillamook. Continue west on 131 towards 3 Capes Scenic, then right on Bayocean Rd NW, and on to the lake.
