Lots of privacy compared to most campgrounds, very quiet at night. Easy walking distance to the beach with wonderful paved trails for walking and riding bikes. Great fishing in Coffenbury Lake which is in the park also. Exhibits in Fort Stevens are worth a visit which give an insight to its development and role during the last century. Elk herds... More

As day park and as campground, Fort Stevens has lots to offer: wonderful imposing ocean to admire, long and long sandy beach to walk and photograph, admire the Peter Iredale shipwreck, good size campsites under the trees (full hook up, by the way), peaceful and serenity all around! We loved this park!! Lots to see and do: ocean, beach, forest,... More

Even if you aren't a camper, a Fort Stevens provides great access to various spots on the beach, bicycle paths, historic bunkers, and a shipwreck! This is a great destination if you are a camper or a great place for a day trip if staying in nearby Astoria or Seaside. Only campers pay for access to sites, the beaches are... More

We stayed at the KOA across the street last year and the state park was so much better. Besides being cheaper, the camp sites are all pretty private and there are so many places to bike and walk. The beach is 1 mile from the campground but the trail to walk there is really pretty and there is a lot... More

This is great spot. Much better than years ago when you could walk through it without really knowing much about what you were seeing. The wreck of the Peter Iredale is still there on the beach, but looking like it's on its last legs. Ft. Stevens itself is loaded with history dating back to the time of the Civil War... More

To be fair, I only went to the beach here. I looked at the skeleton of the ship that is still partially buried in the sand, which was pretty cool. The rest of it was a standard Oregon beach. There were actually quite a few people there, which is rare for Oregon, but it was a weekend and it was... More

My 8 year old loves World War II and military history. He was able to run around on the same grounds as World War II soldiers. He was able to touch cannons and go into actual buildings The view of the Columbia River is gorgeous. We saw several deer and different types of birds. The museum is small but had... More

I camped here the Thursday night of Memorial Day weekend- managed to snag a tent site without a reservation. I had a great time photographing the Peter Iredale shipwreck and I also ran the 2 mile trail around Coffenbury Lake. I was planning on exploring the barracks in the morning, but when I woke up in a wet tent in... More

Where do I start?? This park is breathtakingly beautiful. There are loads of trails and activities. We hiked 5 miles, the weather was perfect during spring break. We walked our way to Battery Russel and it is spooky but so very neat. There was a forest ranger whom I checked in with, Breanna, she was so nice and super helpful.... More

We spent 2 days at Fort Stevens. We hiked, geocashed, went to the Battery places and the museum. It was a great place to learn of our great Oregon history. Our Oregon coast was attacked by the Japanese in 1942. To top it off we saw elk as well!
