My wife and I were a little disappointed that the visitor’s center was not larger and that it did not have any relics from the Lewis and Clark Exposition. But then again, we have been spoiled by Jamestown and Yorktown. After watching the Ken Burn’s video and reading “Undaunted Courage” by Stephen E. Ambrose - we were looking for more.

I am a huge Lewis and Clark buff so I enjoyed seeing the replica of Ft. Clatsop. I was really excited about going and was a little disappointed that there wasn't more to the place.

We had been traveling to see as many National Parks as we thought we could see. We stopped in to see what this park had to offer. It was interesting to go back in time and see what and how they lived back in the exploring years. Sounds like it was a tough life. The stories were interesting and a... 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.

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.
