Really enjoyed this attraction. It was not overdone - just nicely done. The recreation of the fort was interesting and the trip down to the river was a nice trip with trees labeled, etc.

This is the site where Lewis and Clark over wintered and prepared to return east after their journey west. Our volunteer docent added good local information to make the reconstructed fort come alive. The gift shop has items hard to find elsewhere.

The fort is quite small and interesting to see how Lewis and Clark spent the winter. The movie in the visitor center is worth waiting to see.

This isn't a huge place, but worth an hour visit. It has a nice museum and a small fort down a short trail.

Just great national memorial, with lots of history in the center. Several hikes around the area, including the fort to sea trail, which itself is exceptional. Highly recommended.

I'm sure the original wasn't built this good. It does give everyone a idea of how they survived the harsh winter waiting to go back home.

Dogs are allowed on all outside areas and trails. They are not allowed in the museum portion. The fort itself is so small that you can stand in the doorway and peek in.
