We liked the fort reconstruction of the expedition's winter quarters. It gives you a real sense of the isolation the men must have felt and the hardship they endured. It was a very good historical monument.

The park rangers have a program from June thru Aug or Sept. Thursday to Sunday where you reserve a spot on a guided river tour they conduct. limited to 5 craft they supply along with life vests and paddles. It was fun, strenuous and wet, but an adventure and learning experience on the history of the Lewis/Clark River

Fort Clatsop is a small park, but big on friendliness, good rangers and talks, and Visitor Center Museum. The Jr. Ranger program had the kids all excited. The orientation movie was good.

Ever vigilant to learning about America’s past, we stopped at this fort on the way back to Portland. It is an interactive park with costumed “actors” that will recount the tales and woes associated with the camp that the Lewis and Clark Expedition built to winter in Oregon before heading back East. A re-creation of the fort is there for... More

This is a great park, with a very good visitors centre, very educational and fun. When we visited there was a rangers talk and a demonstration of firing a flintlock.

This is a relatively small site, but they do an amazing job of presenting Lewis and Clark's journey. The fort was breathtakingly recreated and they have rangers telling stories that will captivate you instantly. The visitor's center is very informative.

We thoroughly enjoyed being where Lewis and Clark wintered after reaching Oregon. There is a replica of the fort they built and a path to area the canoes were brought in. The Visitor's Center was also nice.
