Made it to the Park late afternoon and have little time to see a lot. I did get a nice book about the history of the Fort and we plan to go again. The Park has RV , camp , and day use sites. Call Oregon State Park Info Center at 1-800-551-6949

If you are as obsessed with Lewis and Clark as I am, you will be in historic heaven! Don't forget to check out some hiking trails while you're there.

This is a great place to camp (or rent a yurt or a cabin), especially off-season, and ALWAYS a great place to hike. Miles of trails feature beautiful scenery ranging from marshy forest to quiet lake to dramatic seafront dunes. Cabins and yurts are really comfortable, if small. Sites are not incredibly private, but you're not on top of your... More

First we drove all the way down to the Columbia river side and walked on the beach. The drift wood and black sand was awesome my kids loved running around and climbing on the wood. Next we visited the ship wreck and it was so cool you can feel how smooth the metal had gotten from the waves hitting it.... More

Enjoyed the remains of the 100 year old shipwreck. And I was interested to learn about the attack by the Japanese and see the Peace Memorial. It was a beautiful day when I was there and walking on the paths was beautiful as well.

Love this camp ground. There is tons to do. Ride your bikes, go fishing in the near by lake. Clam digging at the beach and building sand castles. You can drive on this beach which we love because our daughter is disabled and to get her on the beach it self is hard. We drive right up to where we... More

My family and I enjoyed checking out this state park and seeing the wreckage we went home interested in learning more about it, so glad we stopped to see it out while in the area. Plan to spend more time there to see more of the park when we visit again

Even during Oregon's rainy months, Fort Stevens State Park is a great campground to park your RV for a few days or even a week or more. We just got back from three days at the Park and had a wonderful time. Even though it rained for 2 of the 3 days, we had a great time hiking to the... More

Fort Stevens was a Fort built with BIG battleship guns. Not only are the bunkers still there, the museum and pictures provide the importance of this history. This is one of those gems that most people do not know about, but is really critical to understand the US coastal defense. The size of the guns that could drop down out... More

#1, make sure you come with time to spare, there is SOOO much to see. If you go around to all the different batteries on the fort, it can be quite the walk, but the history can be seen everywhere. You can go in and out of some of the buildings and may want to bring a flashlight, just in... More
