By visiting sites such as this that have excellent interpreters and genuine artifacts, one gains deeper knowledge and a much better understanding of the people originally involved. Their lives, tasks, objectives, and writings are brought to life. I visited this site over a decade ago,...More

This replica of Lewis and Clark's winter camp is worth a stop. Try to get there when the staff is giving demonstrations or talks that cover the history of that era -- they do a terrific job.

The kids loved the “Lincoln log houses” this is an amazing replica of Fort Clatsop and gives a nice glimpse into how our forefathers slept, lived and protected themselves.

Fun, Interesting, and well worth the adventure to see how Lewis & Clark and everyone lived. Harsh winters, hot summers, Indians, lack of food etc! What a way to live and survive. Well worth it.

After watching the move at the visitors center headed to the fort. Its small and dimly light, but probably seemed really nice to the expedition personnel when they stayed the winter.

We visited on a rainy day, so we just drove through and didn't spend much time there. There is not much left, but it is an interesting piece of history.
