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.

Wonderful museum sharing part of the Lewis and Clark expeditions. Helpful docents, a great variety or artifacts from the local area and history of the Fort. Walking trails well marked and kids thoroughly enjoyed.

The museum is quite nice, though it’s full of many replicas. This makes sense given the Corps of Discovery was only there a few months and that once they departed to head back East they gave the fort to the local Native Americans. The museum’s...More

This historic memorial provides a plenty of opportunity to allow for modern visitors to imagine what the exploration of the West by Lewis and Clark may have been like. From the Fort itself to the interpretive panels and presentations - we enjoyed the level of...More
