My husband is a history buff, so much so he is an interpreter for our local museum. We made this trip to the Northern Oregon Coast primarily for him to see Fort Clatsop. The last time we were there was after we were married, 37 years ago. Hey...we're in our 50's...not old yet!
The park is beautiful, with an excellent interpretive center. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Parking for RV's is excellent. Our standard poodles were allowed into the park area, not the interpretive center, but the the trails outside, and that made it much easier for us to see and hike and grounds without worrying about them.
Because of my husband's interest in Lewis and Clark, and the beautiful grounds and hiking paths, we were there nearly 3 hours. Most folks would go through it in an hour easily, but we would suggest longer. Watch the videos, really look at the grounds. This was one incredible journey.
