My boyfriend and I visited Lewis and Clark NHP after we saw signs off the freeway on our Oregon coast road trip. We were so happy we stopped. Lewis and Clark National Historic Park is absolutely adorable. They have a replica of the fort the travelers stayed in at the very spot they called home. They also have Lewis and... More

I visited this place perhaps 30 years ago when our kids were young, found it fascinating, and wanted to return. However, this time, we arrived about 30 minutes before closing (we did not know it closed that early). That was a mistake. We had time to rush through the visitor's center, and then quickly run out to the historic reconstruction... More

Interesting, small museum about a wintering site for Lewis and Clark. They have a replica fort of the one they built for shelter during their resupply and winter stay. There are hiking trails and a picnic area. I used this to have a little lunch before moving on. Ride Safe

Great visit. This is a place kids will love esp. boys. Historical conversation with staff dressed as people who lived there. Quiet setting trail to canoe landing and restored buildings as they would have been back in Lewis and Clark days.The visitor center is quite informative. This is a must see and interact with place.

We and our boys had a lot of fun visiting the Lewis and Clark sites. The staff and rangers were very helpful and friendly, the facilities well maintained, and the interpretive signs well done. There are a lot of different Lewis and Clark sites in the area and worth visiting all of them.

The ranger did an excellent job talking about the people who were selected to join Lewis and Clark. His demo on how the black powder guns operated was great.

We love all things about Lewis and Clark history, so this was a must see. The visitor center/museum was great, staff was very knowledgeable, and the trails and fort replica were a surprise. We weren't disappointed!

This park is where Lewis & Clark wintered before returning east on their exploration trip for President Thomas Jefferson. I was rather surprised at the small size of the "fort" and its compact living quarters. A museum documenting the expedition is located here. If you are a history buff, don't miss this!

We had such a fun time with our school aged kids who had studied about Lewis and Clark and were able to really appreciate the museum and grounds. My elderly parents were able to navigate the well maintained trails out to Fort Clatsop.

My family and I stopped here to break up a trip from Seattle to the coast. The welcome center and it's exhibits were fantastic. The fort replica was excellent but I wished it had had more signage. We did a couple of short trails. The trails were perfectly maintained. It was a great educational stop that allowed my kids to... More
