The replica of the fort is based upon Lewis’ own plans and provides realistic example of life during their winter stay.

Definitely worth the visit! Just imagining what Lewis & Clark, the enlisted men, Sacagawea, and everyone else on the entire expedition went through and by what means is eye-opening! They were all amazing people! The replica fort is very convincing of the original, and with the museum information taken in, you can imagine their lives here and you have to feel for them for the struggles and sacrifices they went through, along with their anticipation and excitement of what's around the next corner.…

An ideal stop for a history lesson and a picnic. Don't forget to get your National Parks Passport stamped!
Fort Clatsop (The encampment of the Lewis and Clark Expedition) was a stop on a summer tour of Oregon in 2019. There's a small museum about the history of the Fort, a 20 minute film on the half hour as well as a small gift shop. We had purchased an Oregon Pacific Coast Passport, so the entrance fee was included in that. The fort (replica) itself is quite small and frankly somewhat disappointing. You can go inside and see the sparsely furnished rooms. The surrounding land is attractive with water, trees, trails and picnic tables provided. Restrooms and water bottle filling fountain available in the visitor center. Don't forget to get your National Parks Passport stamped! If you found this review useful, please click the thank button. Happy travels.…

So enlightening! I think anyone (especially children) will love this stop! A real copy of what the fort was probably like, with furniture!

This is a great replica of the Fort from the Lewis and Clark expedition; unfortunately the indoor museum exhibit hall is currently closed; I had previously seen this in 2012 and hoped to see it again but it wasn’t to be. The docent was knowledgeable and interesting. Take your rain coat!…
