I have lived on and off in the great Northwest for over 55 years , we studied Lewis & Clark in our elementary schools. This was my first visit to the fort, it's worth the effort to get there. Don't miss the movies , they are great. Mike

Very interesting and very well done. It rained on our visit but that made it feel all the more authentic. Super friendly staff. Very well done, great educational opportunity. Highly recommended.

Enjoyed the visitor center and the reconstructed fort. Also the walk to the lookout points (canoe landing sites). Can only imagine what Lewis & Clark and their group thought/felt when they wintered here.

Great place to visit with the kids. Seeing where Lewis and Clark stayed and how they lived while waiting to go back East is well worth the time and money. A must to see if you are in the Astoria area.

We had limited time so we just drove thru the park some. We stopped and walked around the canoe landing, and took a few pictures.

If you get a chance, go to Fort Clatsop, where Lewis and Clark spent the winter in 1805. Great interpretive center, but the fort is so interesting. When it is quiet, you can almost feel what they experienced. Nice pathways. These men and woman were made of tuff stuff.

Tell someone that the first Special Forces Unit in the United States consisted of 31 men, a dog, a woman and a baby all being lead by a manic depressive, and they'd tell you, You're Crazy!! How these people survived is an amazing story. Made of much sterner stuff than most of us today can even begin to comprehend. When... More

Our family stopped here on our way down the Oregon Coast. Assuming we were going to pay about $50 for our family to get in, we were amazed by the LOW COST of admission - less than $20?? The replicated fort stands in nearly the exactly same spot as the original and was constructed using William Clark's journal entries. Simply... More

For years, I have stopped in Fort Clatsop when in Astoria ! This is one of my favorite 'museums', with all the history of Lewis and Clark ! Love reading excerpts from their journals !!!

It was nice to go and learn a little more about Lewis & Clark and their expeditions. Good History. Smaller children would really get a kick out of it. There are lots of trails you can take and site see.
