'Graveyard of the Pacific' Shipwreck Weekend
Cape Disappointment State Park and the Columbia River Maritime Museum invite the public to celebrate Graveyard of the Pacific Weekend at locations throughout the Columbia-Pacific area.

The Columbia River bar area earned the name Graveyard of the Pacific after more than 2,000 vessels met their end where the river meets the Pacific Ocean.
