We've been many times over the years and always find a new perspective. If you can, go during the autumn and winter seasons to get an idea of what Lewis and Clark and the Corp of Discovery experienced . Park Rangers are helpful and informative along with the volunteers/ reenactors. Can't go wrong !

We visited the exhibit at the visitors center as well as the film on the history of Lewis and Clark. The outbuilding had actors providing information which was very nice.

We wanted to see the fort where Lewis and Clark and their crew spent the winter of 1805. It is a replica near the believed actual site. We had a private tour by a college student majoring in history, and computer in case the history thing didn't work out. He was great: we tried to spark flint, held the lead... More

Good stroll through history. Several trails that wind through the end of Lewis and Clark's westward exploration. You can make it as short or as long as you want. Lots of wildlife to see if you get away from the parking lots and visitor center. Make sure you bring your pack, there is a few water spots but if you... More

Details of the Lewis and Clark expedition of discovery are provided, especially about the winter of 1805-6. Easy hiking provides good scenery and exposure to forest and river. Headquarters provides ample displays and information - and videos and presentations for kids as well.

We were disappointed about the visit here. First the sigh to get here was confusing. You actually need to follow the “Fort Clatsop” sign, because the “Lewis and Clark National and State Historical Park” sign disappears after a while. Once you get here, there is really not much to see. It felt like a place for kids. Along the short... More

The center is interesting with a movie which describes how they survived the winter. The reconstructed fort itself is a bit of a disappointment.

Hands on exhibits for the kids, including, during the summer months, costumed folks who are talking about fur trapping, candle making, canoe building..... A great indoor exhibit with a ton of information and movie, as well. Then, there are walking/hiking paths out to a lovely wetlands area. Good for education AND exercise!

The Lewis and Clark historic site was very interesting to visit. The indoor area had information and displays on the expedition. The outdoor area had a replica of the fort.
