The museum is great and very educational. Puts a lot of what they went through with this trip into perspective. My only disappointment is that I waited so... More

We were here on official business, but really enjoyed our visit. The park is in a beautiful setting with lots of hiking trails. And it's really fun to explore the history of Lewis and Clark.

The fort is very small, a few rooms that let you imagine what it was like. Two guides are there to talk about Lewis and Clark but they are not the most forthcoming. Or at least it depends on your group. We got most of our information from the movie in the theatre, which was really good and interesting. Watch... More

After listening to a presentation on the SALTWORKS, which are located in Seaside, I was inspired to hike the Fort to Sea trail. At the Fort, I checked in with the NPS Ranger station to inquire about the route, condition, verified both IF and THE route leashed dogs are allowed, AND paid my Day Use Fee ($5). The NPS staff...

This was the first time our family has visited Fort Clatsop in about 17 years. We enjoy learning about the Corps of Discovery (Lewis & Clark Expedition) and exposing the kids in our care to the rich heritage found in Oregon and Washington states. We visited on a very rainy, cold day (probably very similar conditions to what Lewis &... More

This is especially good for school aged children. An re-enactor in period costume demonstrates period weapons as well as life in the winter camp of Lewis and Clark. The audience is engaged and participates.

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
