What more do you need to say. Fort Clatsop was the winter site for Lewis and Clark in 1805 to 1806. This site it will worth the time to visit. We went on to Fort Stevens and had a late lunch a Cannon Beach, Or. at the Ecola Market . Great Food.

Well this was not the first time I have been to Astoria but it was the first time I heard about the Lewis and Clark Historical Park. We visited a few of the sites although I am primarily writing about Fort Clatsop which seemed to be the main one (in Oregon at least.) The visitor center was very informative and... More

So many people go to the Oregon Coast and bypass the Lewis and Clark National Historical site... museum, interpretive center and total replica of L&C winter quarters. If you are over 55, buy a lifetime pass for National Parks.. the best deal around. Not only will you be at near the "end of the L&C trail," you can go there... More

This is one of the first stops in the park. It's a beautiful spot for taking photos. The buildings are well kept, and the old bunkers are very interesting and photogenic , at least drive thru here, the kids will love running thru the bunkers and playing with the huge gun on top of them. Really was impressed with this... More

The Lewis and Clark Interpretive Centre opened my eyes as to the feats and hardships that Lewis and Clark encounteded on their journeys westward from St Louis to the west coast. I had of course heard of these two explorers, but did not know the depth or details of their journey westward from St Louis, nor of the relationship between... More

We were lucky enough to not only visit on a sunny January day, but it was a federal holiday (MLK), so admission was free! The interpretive center is filled with interesting facts, and an abundance of quotes from L & C journals grace every display. Fort Clatsop itself was such a treat. It is amazing to think this historic journey... More

Lewis and Clark had a major impact on the development of Oregon and Washington areas. This is an excellent presentation of their endeavors to reach the coast following the river paths. Highly recommend it.

There are several parks in this system, all interesting. Cape Disappointment was probably the most educational if you only have time for one.

From downtown Astoria it is an easy half-hour drive over the spectacular Astoria-Megler Bridge to Cape Disappointment State Park in Washington, or head west from Astoria for the short drive to the Fort Clatsop Lewis and Clark National Historic Park. The visitor center at Cape Disappointment includes an exhibit tracing the entire Lewis and Clark expedition, which reached the Pacific... More
