We had a delightful time in the Lewis and Clark National Park. Beautiful and remarkable. The Fort, Museum, displays and exhibits were excellent.

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.

This attraction is devoted to Lewis and Clark and is made up of numerous state parks and a National Historic park with the centerpiece being the replica of Fort Clatsop and the interpretive center. From the interpretive center a trail that meanders to the coast. Whether you visit one or all of the parks, you will come away with a... More

These two guys traveled from Missouri to the west coast of what became Oregon. If one remembers the sojourn, one can appreciate the temerity and dedication by the two heroes. The park is vast. Rivers, mountains and the sea. Take a peak at a facsimile camp and homes. Visit the very shorelines from which this party embarked on the waterways... More

A little off the beaten path but well worth visiting. Audio visuals were good and short shaded walk to a demonstration area was worthwhile. Pletny of staff available to answer your questions and the reconstructed fort was amazing.

There are 9 parts to this park. We stopped at Fort Clatsop. This national park is just a short distance off highway 101. The park road goes directly to a nice visitors' center. From there, it is a few steps to a reproduction of the winter headquarters of the Lewis and Clark party. The rangers were very helpful and gave... More

We visited the Lewis and Clark National and State Historical Parks on the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service in August 2016. At Fort Clatsop, they had special events throughout the day. Admission was also free.

We came here several years ago and this year we were in the area and made sure we stopped again. This is a wonderful spot to get the feel of what it must have been like when the Lewis and Clark expedition spent the winter here near the mouth of the Columbia River. The visitor center is well though out... More

The visitor center provided good Lewis and Clark background. The recreated fort showed how they lived. The trail down to the river was beautiful. We had already visited the Lewis & Clark Salt Works in Seaside. We look forward to visiting Cape Disappointment on our Washington trip next year.

The location was random and unexpected but if you have an extra half hour, it's worth learning about the history of the US (especially if you are citizen) to learn. The location is beautiful and the staff was helpful and informative. Lots of beautiful greenery to enjoy history and a picnic lunch. We highly recommend buying the National Parks year... More
