The small museum and recreated fort at the National Monument packed in a great deal of information about the Lewis and Clark expedition, some of which I was familiar with but much more of which was new to me. It is a fascinating story and a history this area of the country seems to embrace well. The history and information... More

Sadly, this is now a reproduction as some years ago some arsonists burnt it down. But you wouldn't know that if you didn't know that. And it doesn't matter anyway because the reproduction is just like it was anyway. If you are in the area, take a few minutes and check it out. After all, if Lewis & Clark can... More

The Fort Clatsop Visitors Center is worth a visit in order to get a great overview of the Lewis and Clark journey. Their displays are really well done and provide and excellent point of reference for the entire Lewis and Clark journey. See the movie! It is worth the time!!!

First time I have had the pleasure to visit Fort Clatsop, it was nice to see the history of the fort and the reproduction that has been built. The Ranger working the front desk we extremely nice and helpful. The gift shop revenue goes towards preserving and improving the park.

This is a great stop, not only for the history but for the whole area event. Great walking trails (easy), great foliage, great staff, pet friendly if on a leash (please use the doggie bags). Get the kids outdoors and visit the beautiful views of the river. Great for meeting new and friendly people. For $3 it's well worth the... More

As per a review of another reviewer, when in the Northern Oregon coastal area, there seems to be a number of Lewis and Clark sites you can go to, however, Fort Clatsop is under the National Park System. Since my family are history buffs and find the Lewis and Clark fascinating, we decided to search out Fort Clatsop. Found the... More

The reconstructed fort is neat. The museum is good, the staff friendly. The trails have boardwalks and are wide and easy to navigate.

As a kid I remember As a kid I remember Fort Clatsop as a pile of rotted logs in the woods. It's geat to have the site restored and the history told to our nation's younger generations It's well worth the time and fee to visit. A great stop for school age kids to have their history lessons come alive

It's a little confusing trying to figure out which and what parks to visit. Just putting Lewis and Clark in GPS could produce a number of parks in Oregon and Washington. From what I know now, this location, Ft. Clatsop, is only Lewis and Clark parks under National Park management. The others are under State Park management. There is also... More

For those history buffs out there, this is a must-see attraction. After Lewis and Clark completed their expedition underwritten by President Thomas Jefferson, they spent the winter here. Anyone interested in American History should visit. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They have educational material for the kids to peak their interest. Nice walking trails.
