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

Reconstructed winter camp of the Lewis and Clark expedition with costumed interpreters, a museum, and film. Great way to learn about and experience history.

Excellent park with the impressive Lewis and Clark column as its main attraction. Beautiful views overlooking the mouth of the Columbia River, out to the Pacific Ocean. Well worth the visit and moderate entrance fee.

This was definitely worth the $5 (per adult) entrance fee. Even the 17 YO that usually complains about museums enjoyed this one. We enjoyed the exhibits and then took a quick tour of the fort. There were several rangers at the fort that visited with us. They were even doing a short presentation on July 4 celebrations held during the... More

Very accessible facility. Lot's to see and walk through. Really drove home the reality that the explorers faced and had balanced views - i.e. what the Native Americans thought as well. Museum inside had lots of great items of interest.
