Fort Stevens offers great camping, great bike trails, easy access to the beach and the wonderful town of Hammond nearby for supplies. Reservation are needed. It is very popular. It is also the site of Battery Russell.

If you like Salmon fishing, you will like the river fishing at Ft. Stevens State Park. The silver and Chinook Salmon run 10# plus and are excellent eating. Oh yea. They do have an extremely nice camping facility and they do have a lake that has Trout fishing available.

Located in the Northwestern part of Oregon along the coast near Astoria. Close to Ft. Clatsop where Lewis and Clark wintered in 1804. Full hookups and clean restrooms with showers.
