We stopped at the Fort Clatsop National Historic Park. This was a very interesting rebuilt fort depicting the Lewis and Clark winter encampment near the mouth of the Columbia River. There are rest rooms and a gift shop and rangers to give information and answer questions.

The park and exhibits are top notch. We enjoyed walking through the exhibits inside as much as the trails outside. Also got my Parks passport stamped-always a plus.

This is a series of state parks that are now also a National Park devoted to Lewis and Clark and their journey to the Pacific Ocean. The main park at Fort Clasop has a recreated fort. The Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center on the Washington side of the River is more of a museum dedicated to the journey of these... More

Only visited Fort Clatsop, which is the only section under the control of the NPS. The trail to the fort reconstruction is quite short and well worth it.

There are several parks that make up the Lewis and Clark park system and they are all pretty incredible in their own way. The fort is cool, with a great little museum and interpretive trail. There are a couple of lighthouses that are just stunning and if you walk out on the jetty, you can see them both at once!... More

Wonderful national park full of friendly staff. Always something to learn and explore . Demonstrations and talks. Many trails at different level to take a walk or a hike. Can get busy but on busy weekend they were offering shuttle. One of my favorite spots to walk on the northern coast

We were greeted by a docent who guided our visit to the fort first, describing all along the way, very interesting information about the 80 or so days the expedition spent in this locale. The museum offered a terrific book store as well as a couple different films to further enhance the experience. The displays were well done also.

I was so excited to visit the park and learn more about Lewis & Clark's expedition and winter spent at Fort Clatsop. Before traveling to the area a friend had recommended reading Ambrose's "Undaunted Courage" about the expedition. What a great read and it added a lot to my anticipation and enjoyment of the visit to the Park. We started... More

We went for a short visit on our way out of Astoria. The film was really informational and provided a lot of great background and details about the expedition. We did a ranger program on a gun which was great. We walked through the fort and learned about ink as well as how the expedition lived during the winter. My... More
