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.

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
