A replica of Lewis & Clark's fort in a beautiful forest setting. Several hiking trails to river and one to Sunset beach. The Media Center is full of interesting displays and a great bookshop. Many costumed docents.

The park service has done a great job restoring Fort Clatsop and telling the story of the end of the Lewis & Clark expedition. It is easy to find in Astoria and well worth even a short visit

A hidden jewel which boast all Lewis and Clark history. Must see if you want the real story and not the commercialized version. There were so many characters besides Lewis, Clark, and Sacagawea. Explore how planned action, coincidence, luck, and key decisions all played a role in the successful expedition. Why did other explorers die at the hands of native... More

This was great. Lots of interacting with informative volunteers reenacting as soldiers of the fort.Great place for the kids to explore and learn what it was like to survive at the fort. Highly recommended.

We spent about 1 1/2 hours here learning more about the Lewis and Clark expedition. We walked through the fort and listened to re-inactors (sp?) show us furs, talk about Lewis and Clark and shoot a 1795 Springfield...really cool! There was also a movie to watch that showed the Native American perspective of Lewis and Clark showing up on their... More

At only $3.00 per adult it was well worth it. The grounds are dog friendly. You can walk your dogs throughout the property. Easy walk if you're out of shape or have seniors with you. Very interesting and historical.

This replica of Lewis & Clark's winter fort, located a few miles from the Columbia River, is a must see for history buffs enamored with the Voyage of Discovery. The interpretive center has friendly and helpful staff, and the store offers a good variety of books on Lewis & Clark, including Stephen Ambrose's account, and others on Sacagawea. It doesn't...

Make sure you plan your trip around some of the guided tours. Lots of great info from the staff, as well as their newfoundland mascot just like Lewis and Clark had. The walks are easy to difficult, and they are appointed so you can see what you will encounter. The fort has been well preserved.

Stopped her on the way out of town. Nice historical exhibits and reconstruction of Lewis & Clark's fort. Very short trails and was actually pretty crowded (but it was a Saturday, so that's understandable). Maybe wouldn't have gone except we already had a federal lands annual pass.

Everything is a replica of the original fort that Lewis and Clark resided in during the cold rainy winter in 1805. It is a park with many trails to work.
