My husband is an incurable Lewis and Clark fan. We live in the Midwest but since retiring have traveled to 43 of the 50 states. Wherever we go there always seems to be talk of how did Lewis and Clark do it? Finally, we visited the National/State Parks and had a enjoyable day finding out "how they did it." Remarkable....

This is one of my favorite places to spend a summer afternoon. There is kayaking (bring your own, or go on a scheduled tour in the summer), biking, hiking, nature, and of course, a lot of history. I was lucky enough to be there to take one of their summer classes. I took a pen calligraphy class. I was the... More

The visitor center and the nearby Fort Clatsop were very interesting. The center has many interesting exhibits and a short moive well worth the time. The fort has been rebuilt but because they have the original plans it is very much like the original. There is a small fee but if you have the National Park senior pass it is... More

This is one of those hisotrical places where you can spend a half of a day or just an hour depending on your interest or time. The exhibits are well done and the park is beautiful for an easy stroll or a longer hike. Glad we stopped.

Museum at Fort Clatsop was excellent and having the live action re-enactment and interactions with some of the characters from the Corps of Discovery was really cool!

This was the third Lewis and Clark museum we visited on our trip west. There were two different movies about the Lewis and Clark expedition, and wells as many artifacts. It was raining when we visited, so our time outside visiting the reconstructed Fort was quick, and we did not go down to the waterfront. If you are a fan... More

When in the Columbia Gorge River Area, I visited and enjoyed walking the botanical trail at the Lewis and Clark State Park on the Oregon side of this large and multi-site national and state park.

There are several separate areas on the WA and OR sides of the Columbia river that are part of the national park. Of course see the Fort Clatsop area. We also visited a portion of the park in the WA side and the views of the river and ocean are spectacular

Fort Clatsop is a replica of the fort Lewis and Clark built at Astoria. The site is well laid out and the telephone-linked tour is well done. The Visitor Center is well staffed and stocked and the rangers were very helpful. Well worth a visit.

This was an extremely well done museum, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The introductory video provided excellent information, as did the photos and information panels walking down to the theatre. We enjoyed walking through the museum and learning more about the Corps of Discovery and the trials and tribulations they went through. Sacawajea is a rock star!
