Very cool ship to see. Great beach to walk too. It's a family and pet friendly beach. We watched a few kids get soaked when the tide rolled back in..

This is a must-stop destination whenever we are in Astoria (6-7 times a year). This former Army fort, built during WWII, is rich with history that spans two centuries. Fort Stevens also holds the dubious honor of being one of two locations on the west coast to be attacked by Japanese submarines during WWII (Gaviota Beach, north of Santa Barbara,... More

The drive from portland to Fort stevens is too good. The woods on both sides of the highway is good. Carry your meals with you as there are no restaurants around the place

Fort Stevens was a great day trip during our visit to Astoria. The hiking trails, available camp and yurt sites, and rich history of the park was well worth the visit. If travelling in colder seasons, be sure to pack and wear appropriate cold weather and wind clothing.

Nice state park! The yurts are comfortable and clean. And the opportunities for hiking and walking on the beach are terrific.

This park has over a thousand camp spaces. It seems as if things were redone at some point to pack as many people in as possible. Reminds me of so many of those RV spots along the Oregon coast- rows of RV's lined up, side by side. Not much in the way of real camping. Because the park is so... More

We love staying in Yurts and so appreciate the convenience of being able to book a spot on line at one of the largest State Parks per site in the U.S. Beautiful location we would have loved to have stayed longer. Very nice showers and restrooms! The only challenge was not knowing we did not need to check in and... More

We spent 2 nights in the deluxe cabin - it was alright - too close to the entrance for my tastes and it's over a mile to the beach - good if you have bikes or the weather is nice - otherwise you really have to drive to get anywhere

We rented a yurt to escape the city and enjoy the tumultuous oregon coast weather. The stay was amazing with plenty of coast to enjoy. The shipwreck was interesting and we loved being close to fun and funky astoria.

From Astoria, this is not that far. You cross over Young Bay bridge and will easily find the park. Get a park map and take the road towards the jetty. There are 4 parking lots in different areas. We stopped at two - I believe it was "D" parking lot that had the observation deck (a couple of flights up... More
