We were lucky enough to not only visit on a sunny January day, but it was a federal holiday (MLK), so admission was free! The interpretive center is filled with interesting facts, and an abundance of quotes from L & C journals grace every display. Fort Clatsop itself was such a treat. It is amazing to think this historic journey culminated right at this spot. The fort is small, authentic and spare. We were amazed to have it completely to ourselves during out late afternoon visit. I can't believe I have lived 50+ years in the northwest, and just now finally got around to seeing this historic place. Definitely worth the time and miles to get there. We piggybacked it onto the end of a great weekend in Astoria, which was the perfect thing to cap a perfect 3 days.
