We mainly came to the beach to check out the ship wreak, but were surprised that beach was so much nicer than we expected. The wreak was a unique site to behold, and you could get up close and personal for some fun photos. The beach was beautiful and we ended up spending a little more time here than we... More

Best to leave yourself a few days to explore. Paths to the beach from the campground, kayak Coffenbury Lake, Jr. Ranger activities, shipwreck at the beach and don't forget the fort! Camping: we scope out the more "private" loops and spaces, in my opinion loop J has the most private spaces (plus showers with the bathrooms) recommend reserving space pretty... More

The wreck really isn't much, but we had fun driving up the beach. It's a nice beach. We didn't really do much else, but I wouldn't mind coming back here and spending the night in a yurt.

Great beach, there is a fee for the park, and a walk from parking to water, worth it, just fyi. Bring your kites. Also near by is Fort Clatsop, not a beach but more of the local history

The park has been part of the history and defense of the state and the west coast for a long time. For years explores passed the mouth of the Columbia thinking it was not a river because of its great expanse. Lewis and Clark wintered a few miles to the east and later with Oregon as a Territory and then... More

The state park is huge and there are lots of things to do here. Shipwreck beach is an old time favorite, and worth a look. The jetty lookout on clatsop spit is also a cool stop if you don't mind driving to the end of the park. Despite how busy it gets, because of its size you often are the... More

I couldn't believe how many buildings and relics there were to see. There is so much history here but not many signs that explain it in great detail. I was trying to figure out what part of the fort was made back before the civil war but couldn't figure it out. Although it is still a really cool place to... More

Located just a short drive from the city of Astoria, FT Stevens has become one of our favorite camping spots. It hosts a variety of camping experiences ranging from RV with full hook ups to tents and Yurts. The Camp sites offer really fun biking on very well maintained trails that cut through the woods with stops at WWI and... More

We visited on a cold, semi-raining January day. We drove to several beach pullouts, a platform near jetty 2 and then a river-side view of the Columbia. The sheer power of the Columbia and the waves on the ocean was evident and magnificent, even on a day when it was so cold we could not spend much sustained time outside... More

I went to Fort Stevens specifically to explore the actual buildings of the fort. What's left of them are mostly concrete bunkers. I like caving exploring these unlit hallways and rooms appeals to me. I did take a flashlight though. The main part of the park is free and has a few old buildings that are worth exploring. If you... More
