came here to view the shipwreck and daughter wanted to get pictures of her daughters as mermaids in front of the wreck. Nice area to visit.

See the shipwreck. Read the information boards by the restrooms for a good account of the wreck, and the aftermath. We visited the historical section with the ramparts and gun emplacements. Nice rose garden by the museum. There were WW2 jeeps and trucks, displayed by collectors, so they're not always there.

This was our second family experience of an American state park campsite and we were well impressed. We were very new to the RV life, and this experience has helped to convert us! The pitch was pretty good, although many more than the four of us may have got crowded. The bathrooms were fine and close by, though a little... More

Stopped off here on our way from Seaside, OR back to SeaTac, WA. What a find! It's off the beaten path for sure, and I wish we had time to camp here. Fishing. Maybe some swimming in the river. Bird watching. Whale watching. "No Go" Conservation areas for wildlife only Close to Astoria. Jealous of those Astorian who have this... More

This park has it all- from camping to hiking, the ocean, the Columbia River, Fort Stevens and Museum, ship wreck site, unbelievable camping facilities, and close proximity to Astoria and Lewis and Clark historical sites. The people were friendly and the facilities were first rate. This is tax payers money well spent.

Fort Stevens has wonderful camping areas, hiking trails, a great "wreck site" (Iredale) to explore on the beach, military forts as well as a lake to enjoy relaxing while fishing. During the fall/winter there is a half-marathon hosted which is a beautiful route throughout the park. This is a great weekend trip.

This is a wonderful park full of history. When researching our trip we found this park and read that it is an American Civil War fort, the farthest West. Even though battles for the Civil War didn't make it this far West, they were still expecting and preparing for them. It is also the only US military fort fired upon... More

We almost drove right by this place. Didn't know much about it but decided to check it out and glad we did. At one time this was a huge army base. About all that's left are huge bunkers that once housed large artillery to protect the Columbia river. Great views from th top of the bunkers. Very little of the... More
