We were on our way to Astoria and happened to see a sign for the Lewis & Clark National Park and decided to take a look. Really nice visitors center with great exhibits about the winter that the Lewis and Clark expedition spent at the location. The highlight was that 2 of the rangers were beginning the process of setting... More

A huge piece of American History that all came to an end right here. The forest is stunning, and the "encampment" and show are interesting for anyone that has a love of our countries history. The scenery is also a big booster with huge trees, and the constant sound of native birds calling and singing out of sight. It's just... More

Fort Clatsop has been one of my favorite places to visit. I moved to the area and I still love to visit! There are so many great trails. The fort to sea being my favorite.

I had wanted to visit this fort for years, and we are so happy that we traveled here. It was even a very rainy day but was still worth the visit. I highly recommend Fort Clatsop

Very well done recreation of the camp built for the Lewis and Clark expedition. The construction, the materials used, copies of the journals and items that would be for every day use all are here. The interpretive center is very informative and very well done. Recommend.

We visited on Thanksgiving morning . . . no one there except the super friendly rangers. We loved the museum and film which gave a great introduction before setting outside to the trails and other L&C sites in the area.

For such a tiny facility, they have a lot of information and knowledge. The fort was interesting, and as we were there in the winter like the Lewis & Clark Expedition, it was fascinating to realize how cold and unbearable it must have been. The Fort is free for active Military which was a nice surprise.
