We stopped here on a whim and were pleasantly surprised with all of the trails and information. The staff were very friendly and so knowledgeable. Wish we could have spent more time exploring.

Make sure that you check out the movies that are shown in the theater, The one we saw this trip was about 23 minutes long and related the trip west of Lewis and Clark, their stops, their mission, the people with them and the people that they met. The shop is small but contains dozens of books about Lewis and... More

We stopped here on a cross country road trip. We had already been to 6 other National Parks. There are lots of helpful Rangers here and lots of interesting things to learn and see. It is completely worth the stop

The park doesn't take long o tour, they show a short film and the Ranger then walks you through the woods to the fort/homestead. The Rangers can get a little long winded but it's nice to see someone who enjoys their job.

We visited both sides of the Lewis and Clark State Parks--Washington and Oregon. Both are worth seeing. Fort Clatsop was very educational. The lighthouses on the Washington state side were well worth the hike.

We visited various areas of Lewis and Clark National Park. Our first stop was at Fort Clatsop, where we went to the museum, watched the movie, and saw the fort. This site charges, but we were able to use our national park pass to gain admission without paying more. We then went to the Salt Works area. By the time... More

The visitor center exhibits consist primarily of walking down ramps to read signboards about Lewis and Clark, with paintings scattered between what you read. This consists of Lewis and Clark quotes as well as a timeline of their trip. A few artifacts are on display such as books belonging to the Gass family. He was the expedition carpenter. You'll also...

Beautiful place to visit. So green and it abounds in evergreens. Did see some deer along the route. Drive is easy, not far from Astoria.
