I love history and historical sights so this was a really interesting place to come. My favorite part was probably the video which really gave a great story of Lewis and Clark and the Fort. The museum also had some really interesting artifacts and more great information on the journey. The fort itself was not as impressive and was rebuilt... More

How great is it when you can combine a great history lesson with a fun trip for everyone. Fort Clatsop was the final stop for the Lewis & Clark Corps of Discovery before they headed back East to St. Louis. The National Park Service has a great "Junior Ranger" program that encourages kids to learn more about Lewis & Clark... More

i was at Fort Clatsop sometime ago but I really enjoyed the experience. I have pics of myself with a gentleman dressed in the buckskin style of the time and I just felt as if I was part of the Lewis and Clark era. I recommend this to anyone who would like to see a slice of our history!

We are history buffs - fascinated with the Lewis & Clark expedition. Our experience at Fort Clatsop far exceeded our expectations. The women in the visitor center were extremely friendly and full of information. The guides at the fort did an outstanding job - they made the story come to life for us! We tried writing with quill and ink,... More

Having seen various locations on the Lewis & Clark trail, seeing Fort Clatsop was a great experience. The fort was enlightening, and the museum even more so. We had seen one of the videos about the journey several years ago. Next time, I would like to take the hike to the ocean.

I really enjoyed my visit to Fort Clatsop. The visitor's center has a great museum that manages to tell the entire story of the Lewis and Clark expedition in a short amount of time, as well as a daily exhibit showing exactly what happened on the expedition on the same date in 1805. The rangers are extremely knowledgeable about the... More

Fort Clatsop is part of the Lewis and Clark National Historical Park that features historic sites in both Oregon and Washington along the lower Columbia River. The fort is thought to be close to the actual winter encampment built by the expedition to the west.

An excellent museum, and the rangers are prepared to advise a great deal beyond the visual appeal of the place. A most worthwhile stop.

This was cool but it's not the original. If you like the history of Lewis and Clark then you should check it out. It's 3$ per person.

This National Park has something for everyone. The fort is not the original, but has been rebuilt (twice) by artisans from all over the U.S. The demonstrations held in the summer months are authentic and actually cover a large area of Clatsop County and across the Bridge into Washington. There is a fee.
