We were hiking with another couple that are also in their mid-60's. We wanted a full day's hike and decided on the Fort to Sea trail. We dropped one vehicle at the ocean and drove to Fort Clatsop where where left the other vehicle. The hike is a fairly straight forward, pretty easy hike that is well marked and features... More

We enjoyed the short hike along a beautiful trail. The information of Fort Clatsop National Memorial was abundant. There were guides to help answer questions and make the visit enjoyable.

Having drove the Columbia Gorge from East to West several years we didn't go further than Portland. I really wanted to see where Lewis and Clark ended up at. Of course, realize this is not the original Fort but a replica. Still is interesting to see how they accommodated themselves during the winter. The walks/hiking trails through the area are... More

We learned a lot of history about Lewis and Clark. Amazing they got back alive. If it was not for First Nation folks they would have died!

We were making our way down the Oregon coast near Astoria and I wanted to see Fort Clatsop. If you're reading this, you probably know that it is the site of Lewis & Clark's camp fir the winter during their expedition. The wooden fort structure is a reproduction, but supposed to be built as the original was. The site itself... More

The last stop on our tour of the Lewis and Clark Trail and a great way to end the trip. This reconstruction of the fort the Corps built to winter before their return is very interesting and educational. The ranger who led our tour, Tom Wilson, was obviously a Lewis and Clark scholar and gave a very good talk. He... More

This was our first stop on a recent tour re-tracing the journey of Lewis & Clark. I found the ranger staff very knowledgeable and the visitor center very informative.

We purposefully drove from PDX out to the top of the Oregon Coast to start here and work our way down. It was interesting historical site. It's actually more spread out over a wide range of land. There were hiking trails to do but we were trying to do a quickish stop. About 1.5 hours here checking out the recreation... More

We went early in the morning to avoid tour buses and we were able to use our federal park pass at the fort. There is a short interesting information movie that was worth the time to watch. There is a flat path if you want to take a tour on your own to the fort before the crowds begin. It... More

This park deserves a quick visit to learn about some of the history of the Lewis and Clark party. It is right off highway 101 and requires very little walking.
