Lots of driving to all the spots in this area. We enjoyed both Fort Clatsop and the cape disappointment hike. Unfortunately we were there 'offseason' for the L&C interpretive center up on cape disappointment. But it was so fun for the kids and us to learn more. The visitor center at fort clatsop was wonderful. Staff was great too!

In March 2015 I paid $10 to park at the bottom of the hill. It would be nice if the park told visitors that the museum is another $15 ahead of time. Twenty five bucks is way too much for a concrete bunker and average museum.

This is the winter encampment of Lewis and Clark. There are recreated buildings and during the summer many reenactments of activities from that time. Kids love it. A small cost to enter. Nice book store also.

Traveled to Astoria specifically to visit the Lewis and Clark sites and were not disappointed. Very, very well done on the part of the National Park Service and State Park Service. Do not miss either site (especially the Interpretive Center in Cape Disappointment.)

This park has not only history but Rangers that bring that history to life. I was fortunate enough to see some of the Rangers doing demonstrations. This is a unique park with a valuable history for those that listen to it. Geographically easy to walk, historically easy to understand, and nature surrounds you in a most beautiful way. You become... More

The salt works site is just as described. It's 4-5 metal buckets set atop a reconstructed stone oven with a metal fence around it. It you're short on time, skip this. The beach access by the salt works is nice.

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.
