Lots of war bunkers and batteries, as well as very good walking paths. Great view of the South jetty of the Columbia River. To our surprise we ended up spending the better part of the day exploring the park.

We're locals and I grew up going to fort stevens all summer long. There is a ton of stuff to do. Camping, fishing, swim at the lake, play on the peter iredale beach, walk the trails, watch the ships go by on the river beach, the list goes on and on. Still my favorite place to go explore even as... More

This is a real nice state park with a lot of history. Hard to believe all of the money and manpower that went into building these huge concrete structures, which are all that's left. Lots of parking, hiking trails, picnic areas and interesting exhibits. You can take your dog anywhere but into the gift shop/museum. Definitely worth the $5.00 admission.... More

I really liked this park for the variety of settings within the park. Abandoned coastal defense battery, wildlife viewing, and a shipwreck! Be sure to visit the observation platform which overlooks the south jetty of the Graveyard of the Pacific.

We had a great stay in a deluxe cabin. We checked in late and still no problem. Room was clean and fresh. BBQ worked great. Went to Fort Stevens and enjoyed the view. I recommend the campground highly.

This is a fantastic state park. Lots of trails for hiking, amazing ocean views, and lots if space make this a great day visit. We loved taking our 4WD on the beach and just exploring. Oregon does a great job with maintaining this enormous park. Well worth the visit.

Fort Stevens was the start of a three week back packing trip along the Oregon Coast. Their hiker-biker camp was convenient and near the restrooms. It's a mile or so off the beach, wooded paved trails get you there, and the beach stretches on for miles. Interesting sights--the shipwreck, the bunkers that were fired on by a Japanese sub during...
