This was my sons dream come true. How many boys can say they have fired WWII guns, yes it had blanks but it sounded and felt real. Huge place spread out over miles and miles. Fun old bunkers and buildings to explore. Guys walking around in army uniforms with displays everywhere. But make sure you look on the map and... More

What a pleasant place. The park has a variety of things to experience from fantastic beaches, a couple of lakes, a shipwreck, a couple of preserved forts, and a wildlife viewing area that overlooks the mouth of the Columbia River/Washington state coast line. The park is well designed for camping, biking, hiking and horse riding. Each camping area had a... More

Loud, noisy and obnoxious - I am talking about the parents (here I use the term loosely) who apparently think taking the kiddies to Ft. Stevens is about the same as Walmart on a Saturday afternoon or a McDonalds with a kiddie playground. We camped in M5. Unbeknownst to us we were next to the bath/shower walkway (you're not shown...

We visited the shipwreck, and the old fort. The shipwreck as since had some things removed and is getting weathered, but still neat read history. The old fort is a series of bunkers, stairs, and the mounts where the guns were. Nice to imagine how the guns pointed and how the men would have got around, slept, where they ate.... More

We didn't stay at the campsite, but made a day trip to Fort Stevens State Park to see the fort and shipwreck. Nice historical places. Neither was crowded when we went, so I it was great to look around and imagine how life was like for soldiers back then and all the drama that might've ensued. The dark sand was... More

Mark your calendar nine months ahead and reserve online. This State Park has it all; the beach, bike trails, nearby tourist activities, and driving on the beach. The mosquitoes were plentiful, so bring the bug spray. Family friendly, quiet at night, and well maintained.

We decided to camp at Fort Stevens with my family for my birthday this year. Good things about the camp site: 1) The camp hosts are very nice and helpful! They were very sweet, knowledgeable and helpful. 2) The camp space was clean when we got there; no garbage or debris. 3) The bathrooms were clean! 4) The showers were... More
