“You can see all of Astoria and beyond!”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

We stopped in Astoria briefly on our way out of Oregon and decided to go to the column. You will need to pay for a 2 dollar pass to park there. If you are able, you should climb to the top and look over all of Astoria out to Cape Disappointment and out to Tillamook Head 18 miles away.

“Simple... Go!”
Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

Quick, easy, in the neighborhood.
$2 parking fee. And not that a difficult of climb. The stairs are narrow and if anyone is coming down you have to wait at each landing (good place to catch your breath).
The platform at top is narrow, so get up take your pix then get down, not a place to linger.
Oh! By the balsa wood gliders at the gift store. It's worth the story.
Even has flush toilet on site, a must for a family.

“Views are unbelievable!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

For $2 you get a yearly parking pass and a view that is priceless. The view from the parking lot is gorgeous, and if you aren't faint of heart, climb 164 steps and take in the view from the top of the column.

“Wonderful Historical Site”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

A must see if you are visiting Astoria, OR. It is quite a climb to the top but the view is stupendous! I live over in Long Beach, WA and this is one of the places we take visitors to.
