    Climbing to the top of the column was great exercise and provided fantastic 360 degree views. The story behind the column was interesting and informational. It was made more fun, as those who climbed were given balsa wood airplanes to launch from the top. Some advice - wait for a gust of wind before sending your airplane flying! I hadn't really heard about the Astoria Column, but feel it's a must see experience. We are so glad we went!

    By far Oregon's best State park. Fantastic staff, tons to do and high quality rv sites. Surrounding sites are great, amazing salmon fishing and clamming.

    Our family went there with my elderly father, my sister and her husband and my niece and nephew. So educational. I love real-life history that helps you imagine how they lived, the dangers and physical challenges they faced. They had real cabins, and bunks with the same types of furs they used. It is hard to imagine how they could sleep like that. I am grateful for the practical application of real-life history in my back yard. It makes me feel connected to my home more. My Brother-in-law is a High School History teacher, and he LOVED it.

    Provides such an amazing view. Drove this route on our way to Long Beach Washington. We were lucky to have nice sunshine on the Oregon side but drove through a brief hailstorm on the Washington side 😊

    Thoroughly enjoyed the visit here. The gent on site gave us a very nice intro into the life of the family and history of the house. Walkthrough has a fun little treasure hunt to identify items that did not belong.

    Such an interesting piece of the Lewis and Clark Corps of Discovery history. There is a replica of Fort Clatsop that depicts the hardship and rough condition the 33 people endured to map out the newly acquired territory in the Louisiana purchase. There is a nice visitor center, which is being rebuilt as of this posting, with two movies about the expedition and the interaction with the people and environment along the way. The little visitor center has maps and artifacts which give a better understanding of the route and challenges they overcame along the way. After visiting, I am left with a better appreciation of the places and the people who came before us. It has answered many things I’ve always wondered about like where did those names of these places come from and who was here and when. For any lover of history, it’s well worth the visit.

    You have to check the schedule to see if it is running but well worth the time and effort. The views are spectacular

    Did a 5 mile walk along the river from our hotel. Great exercise, and we loved talking to everyone we passed on the way.

    Our first time there and we were a bit confused. Someone said find a seat and grab a menu, so we did. They have mostly (all?) craft beer on tap. I had the Meadow Pils which was quite good and quite a hops flavor. The menu contained typical and some atypical pub food. I had one of their fish sandwiches and it was excellent. It was accompanied with tomato and dill pickle slices as well as seasoned fries.

    I remember as a you guy, seeing lightship in New England. This ship brought back great memories. Even took some photos.

    Short trail that isn't too strenuous. I parked on the road and then walked up to see the tree and then continued up to the Astoria column. Amazing to see the size/massiveness of the trees. Once you get to the top, the views from up there and from up on the column are amazing.

    House is cool. Parked down the street as directed. Annnnnd rhen ‘KAREN’ showed up bitching at people about walking down ‘her’ street. Worthless waste of oxygen.

    Came on a very stormy, windy and rainy day. This place provides all the power of mother nature! The views of the very powerful ocean from the viewing platform was one I will not forget.
    Respect the power and be safe.

    About 8 miles south of Astoria, you can find Youngs River Falls. It is a nice country back road drive to get to. Paved all the way including the most of the side road. Ample parking. The trail is short, but a little tricky. Downhill, over tree roots some uneven rocks. The falls do make the effort worth it. The river falling over the rock is a welcome site. Not super tall , but beautiful. Nice little outing.

    A rare winery that makes only fruit based wines. Paul is a wealth of knowledge and humour that made for one of the most interesting wines tours I have even been on. A "must do" in the Astoria area. Thanks Paul !!!!
